SP94 "Joint Sealing and Bearing Systems for Concrete Structures" offers a comprehensive, in-depth analysis of this critical aspect of concrete construction. With bearings and joint sealants often being neglected in the design of highways, buildings, and bridges, this two-volume set will explore new areas of this technology. This-two-volume set offers a wealth of information on topics such as: behavior of masonry bearing plates in highway bridges; selection criteria for bridge bearings; the principle of elasticity for expansion joints; pot bearing rotation and minimum load; elastomeric concrete expansion joint transition solutions, and current design requirements and considerations for fire safety of effectively sealed expansion joints in buildings and other structures. In addition, Volume 2 offers reports on: silicone sealants and their use in airfield applications; the testing of waterproofing joints for bolted circular segmented linings; and more.
