Abstract:
Many years experience has proven there are essential elements that must be considered in designing joints in Portland cement concrete pavements for highways and airfields, to insure longevity of the sealant to perform to keep the joints sealed against the infiltration of water, moisture, or incompressibles, or against the infiltration of water, moisture, or incompressibles, or jet fuel spillage in airfield critical areas.
