TEMPERATURE CRACKS AND DEFORMATION IN CONTINUOUS BASE COURSES OF CONCRETE, LEAN CONCRETE AND CEMENT-STABILIZED SOIL

A THEORETICAL STUDY IS PRESENTED OF THE RELATION BETWEEN ROAD PERFORMANCE AND COEFFICIENT OF THERMAL EXPANSION, STRENGTH AND ELASTICITY MODULUS OF JOINTLESS BASE COURSES. AMONG THE SUBJECTS DISCUSSED ARE SHRINKAGE AND COOLING CRACKS, PUSH-UPS DUE TO RISE IN TEMPERATURE, FORCES ACTING IN CRACKED PAVEMENTS, STRESS IN RELATION TO DISTANCE BETWEEN CRACKS, BEHAVIOR OF CRACKS IN VARIOUS TYPES OF BASE COURSE, AND EXTENT OF DISPLACEMENT.
