* The unreinforced post-tensioned transverse joint
between adjacent precast concrete deck panels performed very well under live load with no signs of relative movements across the 24 joints in either horizontal or vertical directions, which also indicated the adequacy of the new post-tensioning system; and,
(2003) reported the experimental evaluation of effectiveness of different details of longitudinal beam bar anchorage and transverse joint
reinforcement in exterior beam-column joints of moment resistant frames.
faulting is the common type of distress for jointed concrete pavement, which has negative effect on driving safety and resulting costly rehabilitation .
The transverse joint
spacing was approximately 6 m (20 ft).
In Tables 4 and 5, duct leakage class is given for configurations with all transverse joints
sealed and one transverse joint
The steel fiber pavement experienced transverse cracking within 0.3 meter (1 foot) of the transverse joint
, while the polyolefin fiber pavement experienced transverse cracking near mid-panel.
FHWA's current guide PRS are aimed at controlling distresses such as transverse joint
spalling, transverse joint
faulting, transverse slab cracking, and development of pavement roughness over time.
