A history of the development of expansive cements and a summary of field use of expansive concretes pertinent to airport pavements are presented. A comprehensive research program is proposed for developing experimental data on expansive cement concretes which are needed to form a basis for designs of airport pavements that will provide longer joint spacings. The proposed research includes specimen sizes, instrumentation, reinforcing, curing, shrinkage environments, concrete mix design, aggregates, and cements to be used. (Author)
