Abstract:
The causes for concrete pavement cracking and how they are related to the development of early-age properties and their effect on long-term durability will be explored during this session. This includes: • The effect of mixture design (including materials used and proportion of materials) on early-age properties and bridge deck and/or concrete pavement cracking • The influence of construction practices on early-age properties and bridge deck and/or concrete pavement cracking • The impact of specifications on early-age properties and bridge deck and/or concrete pavement cracking • The relation between bridge deck and/or concrete pavement cracking caused by early-age properties development and the reduction of long-term durability • Early-age measurement techniques that can evaluate early-age properties that are most related to bridge deck and/or concrete pavement cracking • Quality assurance practices to prevent cracking • Case studies
