Joint Load Transfer Testing

Paper by GSCHWENDT from ISCR 8th 1998 Lisbon Portugal

The paper describes and evaluates plate hearing tests performed on airfield CC slabs, in order to ascertain the interaction of slabs across transverse and longitudinal joints and the joint load transfer. The applied characteristics of mad transfer I .T and T ,TF, varied, however. the great significance of temperature and the subgrade was confiriiied. The measured values were applied to back calculations and the ACN/PCN method when assessing the airfield runway hearing capacity.
