FIBER COMPOSITE DOWELS IN HIGHWAY PAVEMENTS

This research studied the use of fiber composite (FC) dowel bars as shear load transfer devices in concrete highway pavements. Fiber composite dowels, (1) are closer in relative stiffness to concrete than are steel dowels, which reduces damage to the concrete at the dowel-concrete interface and (2) eliminate corrosion because of their resistance to the corrosive agents that attack typical metallic reinforcement.
