Abstract

Contractors, engineers, owners and manufacturers want to be certain that a new product or procedure will yield beneficial results when compared to the current method of construction. The following research was conducted in order to compare the performance of epoxy coated dowel bars to dowel bars of alternative shapes and materials such as stainless steel and glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP). Research was also done on the effect that dowel bar spacing has on the performance of concrete pavements. Four phases of this research are described in this report.
