About the research

Abstract: This report presents the latest technological gaps in dowel bar research based upon completed and ongoing dowel bar research from across the nation. In order to obtain this collection of information about dowel bars, a search was conducted on a nationwide level. The technological gaps and duplications of the research were then determined. In addition, this report also provides a brief annotated bibliography of all sources used to determine the gaps in technology and knowledge for dowel bar and alternative dowel bar topics as applied to highway pavements.
