This report presents the findings of laboratory tests on TS100X TripStopTM PVC joiners. These tests were conducted in the Heavy Structures Laboratory of the School of Civil and Chemical Engineering at RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. A full scale prototype residential pavement (footpath / sidewalk) 5m long, 1.5m wide and 100 mm thick was cast on a steel frame. The testing frame was designed in such a way that the formwork can be removed from underneath the concrete slabs and the slabs can be jacked up from virtually any point – to simulate various scenarios of tree root invasion and soil expansion/movement.
