The paper contains a very accumulated observations from a review of liturature on the evolution of reinforced concrete pavement designs, with references to various systems of reinforcement which have seen extended use. Typical structural concrete pavement failures are described. Trends in design and reinforcement practice are shown, with soecial reference to recent developments. Pertinent findings of a few published pavement surveys are cited, with special attention to the 900-mile Louisiana pavement survey made in 1945. The need for performance information and additional research is stressed.
