EXPERIMENTS WITH CONTINUOUS REINFORCEMENT IN CONCRETE PAVEMENTS

EXPERIMENTS ARE REPORTED WHOSE PURPOSE WAS TO INVESTIGATE THE POSSILILITIES OF LONGITUDINAL STEEL REINFORCEMENT AS A MEANS OF INCREASING SLAB LENGTH AND DECREASING THE NUMBER OF JOINTS REQUIRED WHILE ACHIEVING THE CONTROL OVER WARPING MADE POSSIBLE BY SHORT SLABS. THREE TYPES OF REINFORCEMENT WERE INSTALLED IN THE TEST SECTIONS: WELDED FABRIC, INTERMEDIATE GRADE BILLET STEEL, AND RAIL STEEL. OBSERVATIONS AFTER A YEAR'S EXPERIENCE ARE GIVEN, ALONG WITH TESTS AND STUDIES TO BE MADE IN THE FUTURE.
