A LOAD DEFLECTION TEST MACHINE AND PROCEDURE IS DEVELOPED FOR USE IN STUDYING THE MECHANICAL CHARACTERISTICS AND EFFICIENCY OF DOWELS OF VARYING LENGTH AND DIAMETER. LOAD DEFLECTION CHARACTERISTICS ARE PRESENTED FOR DOWELS OF THREE SIZES, 3/4, 1 AND 1/1/4 IN., AND LENGTHS IN EACH SIZE OF 10, 15, 20, 24, AND 30 IN.
