Abstract:
Since 1960, many alternative materials have been available for sealing conctraction and expansion joints in pavements and numerous devices have been manufactured for sealing bridge expansion joint s. The extruded elastomeric seal is one such product. This paper discusses those parameters and attributes that make extruded seals a viable engineering material for expansion joints in bridges and structures.
