Keywords: no keywords
Abstract:Construction and testing of a 500 ft long and 12 ft wide experimental prestressed concrete slab are described. Loads on the prestressing tendons, development of prestressing in the slab, its load-carrying capacity, and the effect of heat thereon were studied. The results proved the superior behavior of the slab in all respects, and indicated that such construction could be utilized in future airfield pavement construction.
