This suite of 2 spreadsheets allows the designer to undertake the analysis of the curing conditions likely for a new concrete pavement project.
Separate spreadsheets are included for the calculation of the stresses created in the pavement by the curling of the pavement due to temperature changes, and the stresses created within the pavement by shrinkage when it cures.
When used together and in combination with the Westergaard Method or Hetenyi Method pavement design spreadsheets, the user can perform a full structural analysis of the stresses to be resisted by any new pavement slab subject to any loading arrangement.
The suite includes a total of 2 spreadsheets;
- A spreadsheet analysing the stresses created within a concrete pavement due to temperature related curling.
- A spreadsheet analysing the stresses created within a concrete pavement due to shrinkage during curing.
