Slab-O-Concrete Productions was a British mail order distributor and publisher, founded by Peter Pavement, Dave Hanna, Emma Copsey, and Chris Tappenden; operating mostly in Brighton and Hove during the s. Initially selling British small press comics and zines (including Pavement's own comics), Slab-O-Concrete also imported publications from the United States, Australia, and d: Abstract: One of the biggest gaps of missing knowledge between accurate structural modeling of concrete pavement slab behavior and real pavement behavior is accounting for slab warping (locked-in curvature and moisture gradient effects) and curling (temperature gradient effects). Curling and warping are curvatures that can be present in a PCC slab that can cause corners and edges, or mid panel Cited by: Strategies to Prevent Early. Concrete Joint Distress.

Curling, or warping, of concrete slabs is a phenomenon that occurs with differences in moisture or temperature between the top and bottom of a slab.

Anytime there is an increase in temperature or moisture, there is a corresponding expansion in concrete slabs, whereas a decrease in temperature or moisture results in a shrinkage in the concrete slab dimensions.

The warping of concrete slabs due to shrinkage is adversely affected by the presence of eccentric reinforcement. Experimental investigation of such effect is reported examining the possiblity of using eccentric reinforcement to reduce or even eliminate such by: 1.

Curling is the distortion of a slab into a curved shape by upward or downward bending of the edges. The occurrence is primarily due to differences in moisture and/or temperature between the top and bottom sur-faces of a concrete slab.

The distortion can lift the edges or the middle of the slab from the base, leaving an unsupported portion. CIP 19 - Curling of Concrete Slabs WHAT is Curling Curling is the distortion of a slab panel into a curved shape by upward or downward bending of the edges and corners at joints or cracks.

Curling is primarily due to differences in moisture and/or temperature between the top and bottom surfaces of a concrete slab. Curling and warping of jointed concrete pavement slabs is a complex issue, and still not fully understood within the concrete pavement industry to the point where accurate predictions of its effect on pavement smoothness can be by: 1.

Concrete slabs on grade are a very common type of concrete construction. Floor slabs can range from a simple residential basement slab to a heavy-duty industrial floor.

The upward or downward movement of a concrete slab’s corners or edges due to moisture and/or temperature differentials within the concrete is known as ‘curling’ or ‘warping’. It may be evident in concrete elements other than slabs, eg wall panels.

curling and warping. Thicker and shorter slabs result. in a lesser degree of curling and warping. Concrete slabs with a typical joint spacing of 20 ft in Iowa suffer from relatively higher levels of curling and warping stresses compared to slabs with a 15 ft or shorter joint spacing in other parts of the country.

When one surface of the slab changes size relative to the other, the slab will warp at its edges in the direction of relative shortening. This curling is most noticeable at the sides and corners. One primary characteristic of concrete that affects curling is drying shrinkage.

The rate of curing and evaporation of moisture from the two faces can never be uniform and a tendency to warp is the natural result. Also since curing and measurable shrinkage of concrete can continue for as long as 3 years, the movement of a concrete panel due to non-uniform exposure of the two faces can be expected long after erection.

Impact of Curling and Warping on Concrete Pavement Abstract Portland cement concrete (PCC) pavement undergoes repeated environmental load-related deflection resulting from temperature and moisture variations across the pavement depth.

This phenomenon, referred to as PCC pavement curling and warping, has been known and studied since the : Halil Ceylan, Kasthurirangan Gopalakrishnan, Sunghwan Kim, Peter Taylor, Ahmad Abdulraheem Alhasan.

ents in the concrete that also affect the cracking pattern. Evaluating the combined effect of restrained tempera­ ture curling and moisture warping is complicated due to their opposing nature.

Forget what you've been told about vapor barriers leading to increased curling of your concrete slab. While protecting your foundation with a high. It was found that concrete creep has a significant effect on the warping and stress of slabs.

It is important to consider creep effect in designing and analyzing deformation and stress generated in concrete pavement slabs, particularly when a moisture gradient exists in slabs. sections. As a result of the interacting restraint offered by the floor slabs and the foundations, longitudinal and shear stresses associated with warping are introduced in concrete cores.

Therefore St Venant’s theory is inadequate for the analysis of concrete by: 5. Slab Expansion/Contraction z = Joint opening (or change in slab length, in.) C = Base/slab frictional restrain factor ( for stabilized bases; for granular bases) L = Slab length (in.) e = PCC coefficient of thermal expansion by aggregate type (e.g., x/F -for gravel; x10 6/F for limestone) Dt = Maximum temperature range.

The water in the concrete issue is less of a problem with thin slabs because with a thin slab there is not a lot of concrete mass with a lot of water in the mass of the concrete to begin with. But where slabs are thickened for structural reasons wood flooring problems can occur (Photograph 6).

Again, this all can be avoided with a low w/c ratio. Portland cement concrete (PCC) pavement undergoes repeated environmental load-related deflection resulting from temperature and moisture variations across the pavement depth.

This phenomenon, referred to as PCC pavement curling and warping, has been known and studied since the mids. Slab curvature can be further magnified under repeated traffic loads and may ultimately lead to fatigue.

For concrete pavements, curling is defined as curvature induced in the concrete pavement slab as a result of a temperature gradient, in which the surface of the slab File Size: KB.

The answer will vary slightly depending on assumptions: will the slabs have a space between them, and will you be cutting the slabs to fill fractions.

Slab warping can also be measured using a variety of techniques that document the relative surface elevation across a slab panel. In May/Junethe authors had an opportunity to document the effect of a decreased moisture gradient on reducing slab. It is important to note that thicker and shorter PCC slabs can result in a relatively lesser degree of curling and warping compared to the thinner and longer slabs.

In addition, the number of PCC pavements selected and relevant data collected were not sufficient for validating the recommendations derived from the literature review findings.

Torsional behaviour of beam and deck slab is made of three different contributions, namely, the Saint Venant torsional stiffness of the deck (if any), the torsional stiffness of the concrete slab and the section warping.

This plastic sheet is in direct contact with the concrete—as it should be in a. This type of shrinkage is largely responsible for random cracking, wide joint and crack widths, and curling (or warping) of concrete floors. Drying shrinkage causes slabs to contract, or.
