Serial Information: Journal of the Air Transport Division, 1959, Vol. 85, Issue 4, Pg. 25-40
Document Type: Journal Paper
The construction of a full scale prestressed concrete pavement which is to be subjected to controlled traffic testing is described. The pavement was post-tensioned, using high tensile strength steel bars encased in steel tubing and grouted. The method of partially tensioning the tendons to insure proper alignment during concrete placement is outlined as is also the method used to complete the tensioning of the tendons.
