Paper Abstract

The effect of dowel bar looseness on the joint load transfer efficiency using Falling Weight Deflectometer is the subject of this paper. The mechanism of dynamic load transfer at transverse joints of Jointed Plain Concrete Pavement is examined using nonlinear 3D finite element analysis.
