With a joint spacing of ft, the slab motion expansion is then 0. Appropri- for significant volume change. The subbase is usually a good eco- nomical fill material, with the base being a thinner layer of more expensive material having a superior value of modulus of subgrade reaction. Chapter 4 presents a discussion of by assumption, are proportional to applied loads.


In reinforced concrete which is free to expand, the expansion is restrained internally by the bonded rein- forcement which is placed in tension.
