Abstract : The rigid pavement test section was constructed of portland cement concrete (PCC) and trafficked with a 360-kip 12-wheel assembly and a 166-kip twin-tandem assembly to evaluate the performance of keyed and doweled longitudinal construction joints in rigid airfield pavements under multiple- wheel heavy gear loadings (MWHGL) and to investigate the feasibility of strengthening existing keyed longitudinal construction joints.
