Title: Analysis of Restrained Curling Stresses and Temperature Measurements in Concrete Pavements
Author(s): Josef Eisenmann
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 235-250
Keywords: concrete pavements; concrete slabs; concretes; deflection; thermal gradient; strains; stresses; temperature; warpage
Abstract:Measurements taken at four different road section locations show that if there is a temperature differential between the top and bottom of a concrete pavement slab there is a tendency for the slab to curl. When this curling tendency is restrained, as by the weight of the slab itself, large stresses can be created.
