Pavement, Concrete

Definition: a layer of concrete on such areas as roads, sidewalks, canals, playgrounds, and those used for storage or parking.- ACI Concrete Terminology


Concrete pavement is continuously subjected to traffic and, in some cases, severe climatic conditions. Because of its relatively high stiffness, concrete pavements spread the imposed loads over large areas of the subgrade and are capable of resisting deformation caused by passing vehicles. The major variables likely to affect the performance of a well-designed concrete pavement system for city streets and local roads are traffic, drainage, environment, construction, and maintenance.
