Measurement of Dowel Bar Response in Rigid Pavement
Primary Topic: Rigid Pavement
Description: This report summarizes findings from a project which instrumented and installed a total of 12 dowel bars in an in-service pavement and monitored their response under environmental cycling and dynamic loading. An examination of this data might provide some insight into the reasons for premature distress in the concrete slabs.
