Abstract:

The primary objectives of this TechBrief are to evaluate the effects of seasonal and diurnal falling weight deflectometer (FWD) measurements on the load transfer efficiency (LTE) of jointed plain concrete pavement (JPCP) sections and to develop general guidelines for conducting FWD deflection measurements. The data from the JPCP sections of the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) Seasonal Monitoring Program (SMP) study were synthesized and analyzed to accomplish these objectives.
