FIELD EVALUATION OF TRANSFLEX BRIDGE EXPANSION JOINT PERFORMANCE

Transflex joints have gone through an evolutionary process since the first models were installed in Virginia. This evaluation considers the differences between the newer and older models as well as those between model types. Most of the joint installations are not water tight, but they appear to perform better in this respect than most previous joint designs used in Virginia. The joints were further evaluated with respect to their ability to (1) reject debris, (2) maintain grade and alignment, (3) withstand traffic impact without producing excessive noise, and (4) resist wear and abuse.
