Load Transfer - American Concrete Pavement Association

Load transfer is important to pavement longevity. Most performance problems with concrete pavement are a result of poorly performing joints. Distress, such as faulting, pumping and corner breaks occur in-part from joints with poor load transfer efficiency. All of these problems worsen when joints deflect greatly under loads.
