ASSESSMENT OF PERMANENT DEFORMATION CHARACTERISTICS OF FOUR GRANULAR PAVEMENT FOUNDATION MATERIALS IN SITU

This paper is an assessment of permanent deformation characteristics of four granular pavement foundation materials: limestone, granodiorite, sand and gravel, and furnace bottom ash. Discussed is rutting, stress level and repetitions, principal stress rotation, stress history, physical factors, and measurement of permanent deformation. A trafficking trial was conducted to study the problem of correlating in-situ test devices to the rut formed under a moving wheel load and to provide permanent deformation data for four distinctly different granular materials.
