Abstract:
A research and development session was held at the conclusion of the Second World Congress on Joint Sealing and Bearing Systems for the purpose of identifying the outstanding issues. This paper provides a summary of the proceedings of the session. Needed work on joints and bearings was identified within the following subject areas: bearings, bridges, base isolation, materials, movements, buildings, and pavements. The session concluded by endorsing the concept of a Joint and Bearings Research Council to act as a liaison group between all segments of the industry.
