Influence of slab connection in case of expanded concrete pavements

Aleksandra Deluka-Tibljaš, Andrija Prager, Tatjana Rukavina

Abstract

Load transfer from the stressed slab to the neighboring unstressed slab is analyzed in order to establish possibilities for stress reduction in concrete. The contact between slabs is established by means of reinforcing steel shear studs while the influence of friction in the concrete to concrete contact is neglected. The influence of slab thickness, slab cross-section and spacing of shear studs is analyzed, and the expansion joint movement due to change in temperature is studied. Conditions enabling transfer of more than 40 percent of load onto the neighboring slab are defined.
