(JRCP) Jointed Reinforced Concrete Pavement
Portland cement concrete pavement containing regularly spaced transverse joints and embedded steel mesh reinforcement (sometimes called distributed steel) to control expected cracks. Steel mesh is discontinued at transverse joint locations. Dowel bars are normally used to enhance load transfer at transverse joints. The transverse joint spacing of JRCP is typically longer than the joint spacing of JPCP.
