Abstract

"To date very little work has been done on the subject of the amount of crack opening for different loads on concrete pavement. It is a known fact that these cracks must be held together sufficiently to have aggregate interlocking action if the pavement is to transfer loads from one edge of a crack to the other. The maximum permissable [sic] opening has been set at .027 inches by the Highway Research Board. The author has attempted in this investigations (1) to determine the effect of different spacing and different sizes of longitudinal and transverse wires in controlling crack opening in concrete pavements; (2) to obtain data which will aid in the design of reinforcing for highway pavements to control cracking and prevent the loss of aggregate interlock action; (3) to determine the limiting size and spacing of transverse wires of wire mesh reinforcing"--Object of Investigation, page 6.
