DETERMINATION OF THE INFLUENCE OF NOTCHED DUMMY JOINT FORMATION ON THE CRACK OCCURRENCE AT DUMMY JOINTS

ERMITTLUNG DES EINFLUSSES GEKERBTER SCHEINFUGENAUSBILDUNG AUF DIE RISSENTSTEHUNG AN SCHEINFUGEN

A report is presented on three research projects into concrete pavement behaviour carried out in recent years under the auspices of the Federal German Traffic Ministry at the Testing Institute for Rural Road Construction of the Technical University of Munich. Part 3 deals with laboratory tests on large test specimens to determine the influence of notched dummy joints on crack occurrence. It is shown that the geometry of the joint insert has only a limited notching effect. Of greater importance for the cracking time is the weakening in the cross section. /TRRL/
