Design of Rigid Pavement Materials Used in Rigid Pavements Portland Cement Coarse Aggregate Fine Aggregate Water Reinforcing Steel Joints in Concrete Pavements Expansion Joints Associated with expansion occurring with increasing temperature Contraction Joints Associated with contraction occurring with decreasing temperature Hinge Joints To reduce cracking along the center of the highway pavement Construction Joints Placed transversely across the pavement width to provide suitable transition between concrete laid at different times Types of Rigid Highway Pavements Plain Concrete Pavement No temperature steel or dowels for load transfer joints at short distances 10 20 ft Simply Reinforced Concrete Pavement Have dowels for the transfer of traffic loads across joints with joints spaced at large distances 30 100 ft Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement Have no transverse joints except construction joints or expansion joints when necessary Pumping of Rigid Pavements The discharge of water and subgrade materials through joints cracks and along the pavement edges Major Design Considerations Reduction of elimination of expansion joints Replace soils that are susceptible to pumping with a nominal thickness of granualr or sandy soils or improve them by stabilization Stabilize the susceptible soil with asphalt or Portland Cement Thickness design of Rigid pavement AASHTO

Why people love StudySoup

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Bentley McCaw University of Florida

"I was shooting for a perfect 4.0 GPA this semester. Having StudySoup as a study aid was critical to helping me achieve my goal...and I nailed it!"


"Their 'Elite Notetakers' are making over $1,200/month in sales by creating high quality content that helps their classmates in a time of need."
