AN ANALYSIS OF HYBLA VALLEY RIGID PLATE BEARING DATA

AN ANALYSIS OF 89 RIGID PLATE BEARING TESTS, ON 26 DIFFERENT FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT SECTIONS AT THE EXPERIMENTAL TEST TRACK AT HYBLA VALLEY, VIRGINIA, IS PRESENTED. THE TEST DATA ARE THOSE REPORTED BY BENKELMAN AND WILLIAMS. THE LINEAR EQUATION DEVELOPED BY W.S. HOUSEL IS USED IN THE ANALYSIS. STATISTICAL RESULTS INDICATING THE ACCURACY WITH WHICH THE LINEAR EQUATION REPRODUCES THE RESULTS OF BEARING CAPACITY TESTS ON DIFFERENT SIZES OF PLATES ARE PRESENTED. THE ANALYSIS IS CARRIED TO THE POINT OF DETERMINING THE STRESS REACTIONS DEVELOPED BY THE FLEXIBLE SURFACES AND THE SUPPORTING SUBGRADE. THE RESULTS ARE PRESENTED GRAPHICALLY. BEARING CAPACITY AND RESISTANCE FACTORS FOR DIFFERENT THICKNESSES OF BASE AND SURFACE ARE COMPARED. USE OF A HIGH- SPEED DIGITAL COMPUTER IN THIS ANALYSIS IS DESCRIBED. ALSO PRESENTED ARE METHODS OF PROGRAMMING AND A COST ANALYSIS. /AUTHOR/
