Jointed plain concrete pavements (JPCP) contain enough joints to control the location of all the expected natural cracks. All necessary cracking occurs at joints and not elsewhere in the slabs. JPCP does not contain any steel reinforcement. However, there may be load transfer devices (e.g., dowel bars) at transverse joints and deformed steel bars (e.g., tiebars) at longitudinal joints. The spacing between transverse joints is typically between 12 (3.7) and 15 ft (4.5 m) for slabs 7-12 in. (175-300 mm) thick.
