CONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED CONCRETE PAVEMENT PERFORMANCE, 5 YEAR REPORT

TWO SHORT SECTIONS OF CONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED CONCRETE PAVEMENT, CONSTRUCTED IN SOUTH DAKOTA IN 1963, WERE DESCRIBED IN HIGHWAY RESEARCH RECORD 60. VARIATIONS IN DESIGN BETWEEN THE TWO TEST SECTIONS INCLUDED DEPTH OF STEEL PLACEMENT AND THE METHOD OF ANCHORING THE PAVEMENT ENDS. AFTER FIVE YEARS OF SERVICE BOTH SECTIONS ARE PERFORMING SATISFACTORILY. A SLIGHT DIFFERENCE IN CRACK SPACING AND PATTERN IS EXHIBITED IN THE TWO SECTIONS WITH THE MID-DEPTH STEEL PLACEMENT CAUSING FEWER CRACKS THAN THE SECTION WITH STEEL PLACED ABOVE MID-DEPTH. THE SECTION WHICH ALLOWED UNRESTRAINED END MOVEMENT OF THE SLAB IS PERFORMING MORE SATISFACTORILY THAN THE SECTION WITH RESTRAINING LUGS BENEATH THE SLAB TO RESTRICT END MOVEMENT. ALSO, THE WIDE- FLANGE BEAM TERMINAL JOINT IS VERY SATISFACTORY. /AUTHOR/
