Types of Joints in Rigid Pavements: Longitudinal and Transverse

Joints are too important for the rigid pavements because the joints are responsible for reducing stresses developed due to temperature variations. There are two type of joints-

  • Longitudinal Joints
  • Transverse Joints

The Transverse joints are subdivided into three categories-

  • Expansion Joints
  • Contraction Joints
  • Construction Joints

Rigid Pavements: Objective, Advantage, Disadvantage, Components, and Affecting Factors

Rigid Pavements are those which possess noteworthy flexural strength or flexural rigidity. The rigid pavements are generally made of Portland Cement Concrete (CC) and are therefore called ‘CC Pavements’. Plain cement concrete pavements slabs made of specified strength characteristics are laid, with or without steel reinforcement at the joints.
