Abstract

Stress occurring in concrete pavement slab changes on daily and annual basis. Daily changes of air temperature in between environments depend on the following: latitude where the structure is located and season. Change of air temperature causes the variable thermal stress of a slab and consequently change of its linear dimensions (slab extension or shortening. “Thermal balance of pavement” prepared for individual structure solutions, should be the basis for construction design and geometric solutions concerning air field structure. This publication refers only to natural changes of temperature conditions of the environment. Other phenomena occurring on concrete airfield pavement under the influence of imposed thermal loads will be the subject of another publication in this regard.
