PAVEMENT RESEARCH, DESIGN, AND PRESTRESSED CONCRETE

THIS STUDY IS PREMISED ON THE APPARENT POSSIBILITY OF GREATLY IMPROVED SERVICE OF CONCRETE PAVEMENTS THROUGH BASIC IMPROVEMENT IN THEIR STRUCTURAL DESIGN. INHERENT CHARACTERISTICS OF PRESTRESSED CONCRETE ARE PARTICULARLY APPLICABLE. PAVEMENT STRESSES ARE INVESTIGATED. COMBINED STRESSES ARE APPRAISED IN THE LIGHT OF PAVEMENT RESEARCH SINCE 1935. APPROXIMATE STRESS PROGNOSTICATIONS FOR PRESTRESSED SLABS FROM 400 TO 800 FT. LONG ARE SUGGESTED. LONGITUDINAL PRESTRESS OF 300 PSI, APPLIED TO SINGLE-LANE 6-IN. SLABS UP TO 600 FT. LONG, WILL APPARENTLY PROVIDE SUBSTANTIAL STRUCTURAL IMPROVEMENT OVER CONVENTIONAL THICKER PAVEMENTS. /AUTHOR/
