Title: Load Transfer Through Sealed Joints: Stress-Strain Behavior of Sealants

Author(s): Jochen Muller-Rochholz

Publication: Special Publication

Volume: 70

Issue:

Appears on pages(s): 939-956

Keywords: bearings; joint sealers; joints (junctions); loads (forces); rubber; standards; stiffness; stress-strain relationships; tests

Date: 1/1/1981

Abstract:
For a precise calculation of bearings in construction work it is necessary to quantify the forces transmitted through joints filled with plastic sealants. . .Results are presented in the form of stress-strain curves and graphs of stiffness against rate of strain.
