Impact of Temperature Curling and Moisture Warping on Jointed Concrete Pavement Performance

Primary Topic: Pavement Base and Subbase

Description: This TechBrief summarizes the results of a study on curling and warping in jointed concrete pavement (JCP). Profile measurements, following quality assurance plans developed under the study, were collected in all U.S. climate zones, diurnal periods, and seasons of the year to obtain sufficient data to fully characterize slab curvatures. Both functional and structural pavement performance were measured to correlate performance to curling and warping. Products of the study include a new technique that quantifies the magnitude of JCP curling and warping and a system to assess the influence of diurnal and seasonal changes on JCP curvature and pavement unevenness.
