JOINT TESTING EXPERIMENTS WITH A THEORY OF LOAD TRANSFER DISTRIBUTION ALONG THE LENGTH OF JOINTS

A METHOD OF TESTING CONCRETE PAVEMENT JOINTS IN SHEAR IS DESCRIBED. THE LOAD DEFLECTION DIAGRAMS INDICATE THAT JOINTS PASS THROUGH THREE STAGES INDUCED BY LOAD, AND THAT THE BOUNDARY BETWEEN THE SECOND AND THIRD STAGES CONSTITUTES A CRITICAL POINT THAT CAN BE USED AS A CRITERION IN RATING JOINTS. A THEORY IS BRIEFLY DESCRIBED RELATIVE TO THE LOAD DISTRIBUTION ALONG AN ELASTIC JOINT IN AN ELASTIC PAVEMENT RESTING UPON A UNIFORM-ELASTIC SUBGRADE. THE THEORY IS DEVELOPED BY CONSIDERING THE ELASTIC JOINT AND TWO ADJOINING SLABS OF PAVEMENT AS CONDENSED TO ELASTIC BARS ON TWO SEPARATE ELASTIC FOUNDATIONS IN TWO DIFFERENT LEVELS, ONE ABOVE THE OTHER. /AUTHOR/
