Investigation of load transfer efficiency in jointed plain ...

May 01, 2018  When a concrete pavement is loaded close to its transverse joints, the dowel bars transfer some parts of the load applied to the adjacent unloaded slab. Thus, both loaded and unloaded slabs experience deformation. Dowel bars decrease deformations and stresses induced at the loaded slab considerably compared to undoweled pavements.

Pavement Manual: Dowel Bar Retrofit

One of the most efficient ways to restore load transfer at the joints is dowel bar retrofit (DBR). In DBR, slots are cut, concrete removed, dowel bars inserted, repair mortar is placed in the slots, the surface finished, cured, and, most often, diamond ground. Many states have used DBR to restore old CPCD where dowels were not used and have had ...
