TERMINAL MOVEMENT IN CONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED CONCRETE PAVEMENTS. INTERIM REPORT
The purpose of this study is to provide pavement designers with substantive information about CRCP terminal movement. A mechanistic model, PSCP2, was used to analyze free end movement and to predict the size of terminal movements. Field measurements were conducted at SH225 in Houston, Texas, in order to supplement the CRCP movement field data obtained from a previous research study. A comparison between the collected data and the predictions of the PSCP2 program was performed to verify the reliability of the PSCP2 mechanistic model. A procedure was then developed that estimates the terminal movement of a CRC pavement.
