Research on the Contraction Joint Width of Rubberized Concrete Pavement
This paper describes the calculation analysis of joint open, and the research has been carried up on Portland cement concrete pavement and rubberized concrete pavement with the consideration of hogging distortion caused by temperature, expansion deformation and drying shrinkage. Finally ,it were observed that joint open of 6m contraction joint spacing for rubberized concrete pavement is the same as 4.5m contraction joint spacing for Portland cement concrete pavement. The above analysis provides the possibility of 6-meter contraction joint spacing for rubberized concrete pavement which give theoretical basis for engineering application.
