Optimising Sawn Joint Design in Concrete Floors and Pavements Using Tapered Plate Dowels
ITW Construction Products
About the CPD course
An introduction into sawn joint design in ground supported concrete floors and pavements using tapered plate dowels. We will take a look at conventional methods that utilise nominal reinforcement (fabric/mesh rebar) throughout the entire slab and highlight the methodology and performance mechanisms considered in this approach and compare them to those utilised in a strategically reinforced ground supported slab design. We will highlight how Strategic Reinforcement delivers superior performance, significantly reduces steel and concrete volumes and associated carbon as well as saving material, labour and maintenance costs.
