Title: Practical Design Model for Load Transfer at Joints in Concrete Ground Slabs and Pavements
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:Data from a 2001-02 research program on dowel joints in concrete slabs carried out at the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane has been revisited, and the load, deflection and failure mode information derived from the 90 tests was combined with analysis methods contained in Appendix D of the American Concrete Institute ACI 318 concrete design code for anchor devices embedded in concrete. The use of these two bodies of work has allowed the development of dowelled joint load transfer design models for concrete ground slabs.
