Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This report presents the results of laboratory and field dowel pullout tests and shear transfer tests. These tests were conducted to evaluate the pullout performance of dowels and the influence of dowel spacing on the load-carrying capacity of the replacement concrete cast during rehabilitation of vertical walls in navigation locks. The results of these tests and a review of the existing literature on the interface shear transfer and the dowel action mechanisms were the bases for the development of rational design criteria for dowels for anchoring replacement concrete to vertical lock walls. The design criteria include surface preparation, minimum dowel size, dowel spacing, and anchorage requirements. An example for designing dowels for a typical lock wall rehabilitation project is included.
