Results of research, applicable to the structural design of concrete pavements, are reviewed and their significance indicated. I t i s shown that the stress analyses of Westergaard, with certain modifications are suitable for use in pavement design; that warping stresses due to temperature may be as great as the stresses due to heavy wheel loads; and that when de-signed on a comparable basis for the combined stresses of load and temperature the thickened-edge cross section has no particular advantage over the section of uniform thickness. The paper discusses the design of steel reinforcement and of transverse and longitudinal joints.
