Prediction of CRCP Terminal Joints
The purpose of this study is to provide pavement designers with substantive information about CRCP terminal movement. A mechanistic model, PSCP2, was used to analyze free end movement and to predict the size of terminal movements. Field measurements were conducted at SH-225 in Houston, Texas, in order to supplement the CRCP movement field data from a previous research study. A comparison between the collected data and the predictions of the PSCP2 program was performed to verify the reliability of the PSCP2 mechanistic model. A procedure was presented that estimates the terminal movement of a CRCP.
Presented at the 5th International Conference on Concrete Pavement Design and Rehabilitation in 1993.
