A suggested procedure for evaluating the freeze-thaw durability of stabilized materials is developed. Pertinent background information and previous related studies are summarized. The residual strength concept is used in the suggested evaluation procedure. Quantitative characterization of cyclic freeze-thaw action, freeze-thaw testing procedures and techniques, durability criteria, and construction influences are considered. Detailed data are presented for Illinois conditions, and the applicability of the proposed procedure is illustrated. It is demonstrated that current technology is sufficient to develop a realistic approach for evaluating the freeze-thaw durability of stabilized materials. /Author/
