Design of Concrete Pavements

  • R. J. Salter


Concrete pavements are constructed in a variety of forms by several different construction methods. They may be reinforced or unreinforced; if reinforced the steel may take the form of individual bars or welded mesh. The slabs may contain several different types of joint or they may be unjointed or continuous. Construction may be carried out by the conventional side-form process using a concreting train with many differing units, or one of several forms of slip-form paver may be employed operating with a minimum of additional equipment.
