Abstract:
Current design guidance on joint load transfer is somewhat vague and based on empirical assumptions of aggregate interlock and other factors. The new version of the UK design guide is likely to recommend that designers assess the capacity of all load transfer mechanisms, including sawn, dowel and key joints. This paper presents the results of a simplified finite element model developed to test for stress reduction, load transfer and joint differential movement sensitivity for typical ground conditions encountered on Melbourne industrial sites.
