Abstract:
The transverse joint detail on a concrete pavement project called for smooth dowel bars. Due to unavailability of such bars, the general contractor directed the concrete contractor to use greased deformed reinforcing bars instead. Will the greased deformed bars work as an equivalent to smooth dowels in contraction joints?
