Highway bridges have been designed and built since the advent of the wagon, and the general structure types used and described in this chapter are not likely to change. That being said, there are areas where these structure types can be improved—hence the need for future research. It is this author's opinion that the research needs for highway bridges (and for that matter, bridges . An expansion joint or movement joint is an assembly designed to hold parts together while safely absorbing temperature-induced expansion and contraction of building materials, and vibration, or to allow movement due to ground settlement or seismic activity. They are commonly found between sections of buildings, bridges, sidewalks, railway tracks, piping systems, ships, and . Contraction/Control Joints. Contraction/control joints are placed in concrete slabs to control random cracking. A fresh concrete mixture is a fluid, plastic mass that can be molded into virtually any shape, but as the material hardens there is a reduction in volume or shrinkage. Movement joints are also useful when laying concrete within an area bounded by walls or buildings, or when an object such as a manhole cover has to be incorporated within the slab, as they allow the concrete to expand and/or contract without transferring pressure onto the other structures, causing cracks within the concrete slab, or the wall, MH cover, etc.

It makes a smooth movement of bridge slab caused by the temperature change, drying shrinkage, live load etc. This expansion joint damages among bridge members cause the increase of traffic load, installation, and careless repair. Gaps in roads serve as expansion joints. These prevents the breaking or cracking of roads whenever it freezes or gets very hot. Asked in Buildings, Bridges and Tunnels.
