The Influence of Dowel Deviation on Concrete Paving Slabs

Paper by LÓPEZ SAIZ from ISCR 6th 1990

A series of tests have been carried out to figure out the in-fluence of deviation of the dowels on concrete paving slabdowels with respect to slab movements through shrinking andthermal variations.The stresses produced in the slabs for various deviations withrespect to the theoretical position and according to the systemchosen to reduce the bond between the dowels and the concretehas been calculated.
