Title: Experience with Elastomeric Concrete Expansion Joint Transition Dams in Bridges
Author(s): Gary A. Busch
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 997-1022
Keywords: bonding; bridge decks; bridges (structures); control joints; failure; joint sealers; maintenance; performance; plastics, polymers and resins
Abstract:The shortcomings of materials used to handle expansion joint transition dam areas in bridges have long been recognized. Now, with the introduction of a new engineering material, this challenging problem in both civil engineering and architectural structures may be overcome. The 9-year performance history of elastomeric concrete has thus far shown its capability to extend the maintence free life of expansion dams in bridges.
