PERFORMANCE OF TRANSVERSE JOINTS IN PRESTRESSED AND REINFORCED CONCRETE AIRFIELD PAVEMENTS

The movements at the expansion joints of prestressed concrete pavements and at the contraction and expansion joints of doweled reinforced concrete pavements were measured every 3 hr for some taxiways of an airport during different months of the year. The width of lanes and spacing between expansion joints were the same for both types of pavements. The results are reported for readings taken during a 1 year period. The performance of different types of poured-in-place joints sealants, poured during various times of the day, was also checked during this study.
