Formulas are provided for calculating the heights of objects, quantities of rip-rap, the length of French drains, edge restraint, contraction joint spacing in concrete, and wood material calculations.
Without a contraction joint, movement of the old concrete pavement may cause a sympathy crack in the new lanes.
In addition to these predictive abilities, the software developers added modules for predicting the potential of early-age damage to JPCP and bonded concrete overlays, guidelines for timing contraction joint sawing, guidelines for early traffic loading of JPCP, and evaporation rate guidelines to predict the potential for moisture loss in portland cement concrete pavements.
The tapered shape permits parallel and perpendicular movement at the construction or saw-cut contraction joint, eliminating restraint of the concrete.
In this proposal, an expansion and contraction joint would be provided at the crown interface of the barrel and groined arches along the entire length around the perimeter of each basin.

This can result in vertical cracks appearing in the internal and external walls if expansion and contraction joints are not correctly installed during the construction of the building.
It also can be used to cut expansion joints or contraction joints to improve the appearance of the slabs.
Require sawing of contraction joints instead of "dummy joint" inserts.

Temperatures ranging from 0AC to 50AC are routinely experienced in the area, which meant that using normal expansion and contraction joints to make the structure watertight would have presented some problems.
These failure mechanisms were limited almost exclusively to channel bottoms, occurring primarily at expansion joints and along a limited number of contraction joints.
