Temperature Effects on the Concrete Pavement of the Marco Polo Airport of Venice

Paper by BORDIN JOGNA MAZZUCATO from ISCR 7th 1994 Vienna Austria

This paper examines the results of temperature and strain measurements obtained using strain gauges installed in the concrete pavement of the aircraft parking area of the "Marco Polo" international airport of Venice. The purpose was to control the design assumptions and models and to assess the long term behaviour of the concrete slabs. The results provide interesting information about the behaviour of large, thick, unreinforced concrete slabs laid on elastic foundation.
