Abstract:
Results of laboratory experiments on simulated continuously reinforced concrete slabs are given. Specimens 3 x Q8 ft were reinforced with deformed bars, variables being slab thickness, total percent of steel, position of steel and subgrade modulus. The slabs were cast with preformed transverse cracks in the testing region. Vertical static loads simulated traffic loads and horizontal longitudinal loads were used to simulate stresses induced by temperature changes. Results pertaining to slab deflections, crack widths, and stresses in reinforcement are emphasized. Criteria for optimum structural design of continuously reinforced pavements are reviewed.
