STRESSES CAUSED IN CONCRETE PAVEMENT BY SUDDEN TEMPERATURE CHANGE (ABRIDGMENT)

This paper discusses the effect of a sudden increase or decrease in the top surface temperature of a concrete pavement slab, due to,for example, the jet blast from aircraft on airfield pavements, the action of deicing salts for removal of snow or ice from a pavement in snowbound areas, and the stresses developed because of these. Methods for theoretical determination of temperature gradients in the slab and calculation of strsses caused thereby are suggested. To support the theory, some flexural strength test results on beam specimens subjected to sudden change of temperature at the top are also reported on. /Author/
