Abstract:

Details of a research study on shrinkage-compensating concrete for airport pavements are presented. A total of 53 slab-type prisms 1 foot square and 8, 12, 16, or 20 inches thick were subjected to shrinkage, cooling, and heating. Concrete compressive stresses induced by expansion were calculated, as well as residual compressive stresses after losses due to shrinkage and cooling, The residual concrete compressive stresses, coupled with results from previous field applications of shrinkage-compensating concrete, are used as a basis for recommendation of transverse joint spacings up to 200 feet.
