For their characteristics, concrete pavements are particularly valuable in critical traffic hubs as intersections or roundabouts, roads with predominant trucks traffic or bus corridors, bus stops, bus stations, industrial floors, yards and airport aprons. In particular, in Jointed Plain Concrete Pavements (JPCPs) cracks are produced under the...

Functional criteria have been mostly defined in urban pavements using subjective methods, rather than by means of objective and repeatable procedures. The Whole
Body Vibration, the Heart Rate Variability, and new technologies to determine the
IRI (International Roughness Index), are nowadays available. For that, an analysis of

During the construction of Jointed Plain Concrete Pavements (JPCPs) in Chile, it was observed that joints remained uncracked. The objectives of this paper are to evaluate the effects of uncracked joints (UnCrJ) in JPCPs and to propose possible solutions or improvements to avoid or minimize this phenomenon. Considering low thermal amplitude as...
