DYNAMIC BEHAVIOR OF CONTRACTION JOINTS WITHOUT DOWEL BARS /IN FRENCH/

THE INSTANTANEOUS BEHAVIOR OF UNREINFORCED CONCRETE PAVEMENTS IS STUDIED WITH REGARD TO CONTRACTION JOINTS AND THEIR BEHAVIOR IN TIME UNDER HEAVY DENSE TRAFFIC CONDITIONS. THE AIM OF THE TESTS WERE (1) TO COMPARE THE BEHAVIOR OF THE CENTER OF A CONCRETE SLAB WITH THAT OF A "SLAB-JOINT" ANGLE OF A PAVEMENT SUBJECTED TO A ROLLING OR VIBRATING LOAD, AND (2) TO FOLLOW, UNDER DIFFERENT THERMAL CONDITIONS, THE EVOLUTION IN TIME IN THE BEHAVIOR OF TWO CONTRACTION JOINTS FROM PAVEMENTS VARYING IN STRUCTURE AND AGE. FIRST RESULTS SHOW THE MARKED INFLUENCE OF THE TEMPERATURE ON THE BEHAVIOR OF THE JOINTS. THE FOLLOWING EQUIPMENT WAS USED IN THE STUDY: LOADING AND NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING APPARATUS (HEAVY GOODMAN VIBRATOR), DYNAMIC DEFLECTION MEASURING APPARATUS AND MERCURY THERMOMETERS. /LCPC/A/RRL/
