For instance, tie bars are used in longitudinal joints in concrete pavement. Concrete slabs are usually cast in such manner as to ensure the two laterally adjacent slabs are locked very tightly together, preventing them from moving independently from each other—laterally by the tie bars and vertically by the interface friction (and tie bars). xref Warping or hinged joints. ��'���^9��S�!
