This suite of 2 spreadsheets allows the designer to undertake the structural design and analysis of a tied joint in a concrete pavement.
Separate spreadsheets are included for the design of the steel tie bars and for calculating the maximum recommended joint spacings.
Each spreadsheet includes unique features to analyse the effects of different joint spacings and pavement thicknesses. Used together they allow the designer to quickly specify a fully considered tied joint design to suit any pavement design.
The suite includes a total of 2 spreadsheets;
- A spreadsheet allowing the user to design the steel required in a tied joint for user defined pavement slab and loading conditions.
- A spreadsheet advising of the maximum recommended joint spacing for a user defined pavement slab.
