Generally, joint performance in concrete pavements is evaluated in laboratory by applying dynamic loads that require large scale experimental setups. In order to propose a simplified laboratory test, a comprehensive literary review of the fundamentals of load transfer at joints is made, and the load transfer efficiency obtained via a reduced...

Aggregate interlock is the dominant load transfer mechanism in non-dowelled Jointed Plain Concrete Pavements, as the innovative short concrete slabs. Although the Load Transfer Efficiency of this pavement innovation is based on that mechanism, the structural design methods do not relate the Load Transfer Efficiency by aggregate interlock with...
