Abstract This paper presents the use of EPDM rubber joiners for minimizing tripping hazard due to slab misalignment of concrete footpath panels. EPDM rubber joiners are made from ethylene-propylene-diene terpolymer and installed at the concrete pour. A full scale experiment on the joined panels has been conducted at RMIT University. The behaviour of a concrete footpath with EPDM rubber joiners has been investigated under different loading regimes, simulating displacements encountered in concrete footpaths in use. Australian Standard AS3727 (1993): Guide to Residential Pavement is used to determine the appropriate level of loading on the concrete footpath.
