Abstract:The Ioad carrying capacity of dowels at transverse joints of concrete pave-ments is dependent upon width of joint, size and length of dowel, slab thickness, strength of concrete and steel, dowel alignment and compressibility of the subgrade supporting soil. To evaluate the efficiency of the dowels, three test groups investigated the effect of various factors: (1) resistance of concrete to bearing stresses distributed uniformly by dowels of different diameters; (2) effect of dimensions and spacing of dowels, dimensions and strength of concrete and compressi-bility of subbase; and (3) sliding resistance of dowels coated with various substances.
