Abstract: This study utilizes the results of measured strains under static loadings and measured deflections under nondestructive vibratory loadings of the portland cement concrete at three instrumented test locations to determine the adequacy of dowels installed by the drill-and-grout method in longitudinal joinsts as load transfer devices. Two test procedures are used to evaluate the instrumented joints, and the then the test results are compared. The computed load transfer of these joints determined from the strain measurements were compared with the results of the same type of testing performed in the 1950's on drilled and grouted-in-place doweled joints and with a theoretical analysis of this type of joint construction. Nondestructive test results performed on joints of different construction from the instrumented joints are also presented for comparison purposes.
