Expansion Joints in Concrete Barriers

Prepared for Bureau of Project Development Prepared by CTC & Associates LLC WisDOT Research & Library Unit November 13, 2009 Transportation Synthesis Reports are brief summaries of currently available information on topics of interest to WisDOT staff throughout the department. Online and print sources for TSRs include NCHRP and other TRB programs, AASHTO, the research and practices of other transportation agencies, and related academic and industry research. Internet hyperlinks in TSRs are active at the time of publication, but changes on the host server can make them obsolete. To request a TSR, e-mail research@dot.wi.gov or call (608) 267-6977. Request for Report The Bureau of Project Development is interested in whether states use expansion joints in concrete barriers, and if so how often and according to what design guidance and specifications. Summary We distributed a survey to members of the AASHTO Research Advisory Committee for completion by appropriate staff at their agencies. The survey consisted of the following questions: 1. 2. Does your state use expansion joints in concrete barriers? If so, please provide relevant specifications and design guidance. How widely or how often does your state use expansion joints in concrete barriers?

Staff at 16 state DOTs and one Canadian province responded to this survey. Key findings from the survey include the following: Fifteen DOTs use expansion joints, most often every 200 or 400 feet in cast-in-place barriers, and where barriers meet structures or pavement expansion joints. One DOT does not use expansions joints. The chart on the following page summarizes these results, and the Survey Results section directly following this chart gives the full text of responses.

See Subsection 604.03. No strength requirements apply. The Engineer will not apply time limits when falsework is designed to support barrier wall. 601.03.16 Joints. A) Expansion and Contraction Joints for Structures. Construct expansion joints to allow absolute freedom of movement. After completing all work, use a fine chisel to carefully remove all loose or thin shells or mortar likely to spall under movement from expansion joints. Provide and place expansion joints at locations specified in the Plans and Standard Drawings as follows: 1) Friction or Sliding Joints. Friction or sliding joints may be either metal, neoprene, rubber, or premolded filler type as specified.

60129

Kentucky DOT

2)

3)

Open Joints. Place at locations designated and form by insertion and subsequent removal of a template of timber, metal, or other suitable and approved material. Use a method of insertion and removal of joint templates that avoids the possibility of chipping or breaking the edges and construct the templates so removal is readily accomplished without injury to the work. Do not extend reinforcement across an open joint unless specified in the Plans. Carefully set structural steel angles, channels, plates, or other shapes used in connection with open joints to conform to the crown and grade of the bridge deck. Construct the joint with a uniform opening and to dimensions specified in the Plans. Special Types. Use special types other than those listed when specified in the Plans or when the Engineer so orders in writing. Furnish special details for such joints.

B) Expansion Joints for Non-Structural Items. Install expansion joints at all breaks in alignment and at all locations where one concrete construction abuts another concrete or other type construction. Install expansion joints at each 1,000 feet of continuous construction. The Engineer will not require steel reinforcement in expansion joints. When another concrete item crosses an expansion joint in JPC pavements, construct the expansion joint for the structural or non-structural concrete item one inch wide and construct all other expansion joints 1/2 inch wide. The Engineer will not require expansion joints in paved ditches except at locations where the paved ditch abuts another structure. Cut the one-inch thick expansion joint material to conform to the cross section of the concrete. C) Contraction Joints for Non-Structural Concrete Items. Either form 1/8-inch wide contraction joints for non-structural concrete items or construct them according to requirements of this subsection at intervals not to exceed 30 feet, except when items are constructed on or adjacent to a rigid pavement or shoulder. For these exceptions, make the joint spacing coincide with that of the pavement or shoulder. Space contraction joints for sidewalks as specified in Section 505. The Engineer will not require the sealing of contraction joints in non-structural items. The Engineer will not require contraction joints for paved ditches. Construct sawed contraction joints to a minimum depth of 2 inches, except that the Engineer will allow one inch of depth for header curbs and integral curbs. 601.03.17 Curing Concrete. Cure reinforced concrete bridge slabs according to Subsection 609.03. Wet cure all surfaces that are to receive a masonry coating finish, unless using combination material. When using combination material, cure as specified in B) below. Either wet cure all other concrete, except pipe culvert headwalls, as specified in A) below or cure it by application of membrane forming compound as specified in B) below. The Engineer will not require curing for cast-in-place pipe culvert headwalls. At any time the Engineer determines concrete on the project is not being properly cured, the Engineer may suspend all or any concreting operations on the project. At any time during the curing period when the atmospheric temperature is 45 F or less, protect the concrete to satisfy the temperature requirements according to Subsection 601.03.09 D). A) Wet Curing. Cure concrete for a period of at least 7 calendar days, beginning immediately after placement and finishing, by frequently applying water to all surfaces to keep them continuously damp during the full 7-calendar day curing period or until the required strength is attained. Protect exposed concrete surfaces from drying by application of a double thickness of wet burlap or similar approved material and keep the burlap or other approved material continuously wet for a period of 7 or more calendar days. Soak new burlap in water for at least 12 hours before the first use.

SCD See RM-4.3 for other standard barrier types and any details not shown, including materials, adjoining pavement, and doweling details. 6" [150] Longitudinal steel is not required when top width of barrier is 12" [300] or greater. CONTRACTION JOINTS: Maximum allowable spacing of unsealed joints is 20 [6.0 m] throughout the run of the barrier. Construct joints by using metal inserts inside the forms, preformed full width joint filler, a grooving tool, or by sawing. Inserts, tooled or sawed joints will have a 3" [75] minimum depth. See ADJOINING PAVEMENT Note Construct all joints for the full height of the barrier. Saw as soon as curing will allow to prevent spalling. When used in conjunction with concrete pavement, match joints to those in the concrete pavement but not exceeding the maximum allowable spacing.

REINFORCED END ANCHORAGES are required at the ends of concrete barrier runs and at interruptions in barrier caused by expansion joints. When barrier does not abut another barrier run, construct the last 15 [4.5 m] using the END ANCHORAGE Detail as shown here. At expansion joints, construct an End Anchorage on both sides of joint, with a maximum gap of 2" [50] for the open joint. The maximum expansion joint spacing shall be 800 [250 m]. This anchorage is not needed at construction joints, provide dowel bar connections instead. See CONSTRUCTION JOINT NOTE on Sheet 1 for doweling details.
