Correcting Problem Concrete Pavements by Tom Kuennen, Contributing Editor C oncrete pavements are noted and specified for their longevity and ease of maintenance. As a result, most ills that befall portland cement concrete pavements are the result of flaws in the initial construction or lack of maintenance inspection.

    After the concrete has reached a required strength, the forms are removed and curing of the edges begins immediately. Joints Control Cracking. After placing and finishing concrete pavement, joints are created to control cracking and to provide relief for concrete expansion caused by temperature and moisture changes. Concrete Pavement Construction Basics Placing dowel baskets Dowel bars transfer heavy loads across joints in the pavement, preventing faulting at the joint that can lead to pavement damage. Practices vary from state to state, but dowel bars are typi-cally required in eight-inch or thicker pavements.

MANCHESTER, AND WILLIAM L. TRIMM Reported map cracking and Dcracking problems observed on portland cement concrete (PCC) pavements in Missouri from the late s to are briefly discussed. Concrete pavement D-cracking is a terminal condition. Once it starts, there's no known cure.

The cause is known--coarse aggregates susceptible to freezing and thawing deterioration. But the only way to prevent D-cracking is to avoid using these aggregates in concrete pavements. D-cracking in concrete pavement is a contentious and far-reaching issue that usually results in earlier-than-expected deterioration of concrete pavements.

D-cracking is a result of critically saturated concrete exposed to frequent freezing-and-thawing cycles and, combined with frequent traffic, causes spalling and opening of concrete pavement joints over time. A: D-cracking refers to cracks in a concrete pavement caused by freeze/thaw deterioration of aggregates in the concrete.

It has been seen in some pavements after three or more years of service. D-cracks are closely spaced cracks that begin to form parallel to longitudinal and transverse joints, and then later proliferate outward away from the joints toward the center of the pavement panel.

Rigid pavement strength is most economically built into the concrete slab itself with optimum use of low-cost materials under the slab.

TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Synthesis D-Cracking Of Concrete Pavements will be of interest to pavement designers, materials engineers, maintenance engineers, and others concerned with design, construction, and maintenance of portland cement concrete pavements.

Information is presented on the causes of and potential means for minimizing D-cracking of concrete pavements. Description. Series of closely spaced, crescent-shaped cracks near a joint, corner or crack.

It is caused by freeze-thaw expansion of the large aggregate within the PCC slab. Durability cracking is a general PCC distress and is not unique to pavement PCC. Figure 1: D cracking at a slab. KANSAS CONCRETE PAVEMENT PERFORMANCE AS RELATED TO D-CRACKING John E. Bukovatz, Carl F.

Crumpton, and Herbert E. Worley, State Highway Commission of Kansas D-crack deterioration in portland cement concrete pavements was common in Kansas in the s; however, no large-scale investigation was made until PAVEMENT DESIGN Subbase Effects The current Design does not model the contribution of bases accurately.

At the AASHO Road Test, it was found that the concrete pavements with granular bases could carry about 30% more traffic. The current design procedures allows concrete pavements built with granular bases to carry about 5 - 8% more traffic.

The book highlights significant innovations such as one is two-lift concrete pavements, precast concrete pavement systems, RCC pavement, interlocking concrete pavers, thin concrete pavement design, and pervious concrete. This text also addresses pavement management, maintenance, rehabilitation, and s: 2.

MIP tests results showed that hardened cement paste with a w/cm ratio typically used in pavements has a pore size distribution similar to that of aggregates prone to D-cracking.

Concrete Pavement Specifiers Guidelines 5 GENERAL PROVISIONS GENERAL DESCRIPTION This document is intended for use by engineers and/or owners in preparing detailed construction specifications for Portland cement concrete pavements on municipal streets and roads (major/minor arterial and collector roads).Addressing the interactions between the different design and construction variables and techniques this book illustrates best practices for constructing economical, long life concrete pavements.

The book proceeds in much the same way as a pavement construction project. First, different alternatives for concrete pavement solutions are outlined.Theoretical and practical studies of concrete pavement have determined that the optimal spacing between joints depends on the slab thickness, subbase stiffness, and concrete strength.

Most state agencies specify transverse contraction joints in plain pavement at an .
