NUMBER(4,2)
in

Difference between longitudinal location of the bar center and the joint center.
X_POS

NUMBER(5,2)
in

Lateral location of dowel bar determined from MIT scan process.
DEPTH

NUMBER(4,2)
in

Depth of dowel bar from pavement surface as determined by MIT scan process.
MINIMAL_COVER

NUMBER(4,2)
in

NUMBER(4,2)
in

Least distance between the dowel bar end and the joint.
BAR_COMMENT

VARCHAR2(200)


Comment related to analysis of dowel bar.
INCLUDED_IN_JOINT_SCORE
Y_NVARCHAR2(1)


Code indicating whether the dowel score from this bar was used in calculating the joint score.
RECORD_STATUS

VARCHAR2(1)


A code indicating the general quality of the data.
SHRP_ID
STATE_PROVINCEVARCHAR2(4)


Test section identification number assigned by LTPP program. Must be combined with STATE_CODE to be unique.
JOINT_NO

NUMBER(2,0)


Sequential number assigned to pavement joint.
BAR_NO

NUMBER(2,0)


Number assigned to each dowel bar starting from the pavement edge.
DOWEL_SCORE

NUMBER(2,0)


Score assigned to dowel bar based on value of misalignment.
MISALIGNMENT

NUMBER(4,2)
in

Square root of the sum of squares of the horizontal skew and vertical tilt.
HORIZONTAL_SKEW

NUMBER(4,2)
in

Deviation of dowel bar from perpindicular to the joint.
VERTICAL_TILT

NUMBER(4,2)
in
