PUMPING OF CONCRETE PAVEMENTS IN TENNESSEE COOPERATIVE STUDY

RECONNAISSANCE SURVEYS WERE MADE TO OBTAIN A QUANTITATIVE MEASURE OF PAVEMENT PUMPING UNDER DIFFERENT TRAFFIC LOADS ON VARIOUS SOIL TYPES. DETAIL STUDIES OF TRAFFIC, PAVEMENT DESIGN, AND SOILS WERE ALSO MADE. TEST SITES WERE MAPPED TO SHOW PAVEMENT JOINTING, CRACKING, PUMPING, TYPICAL SOIL CONDITION AND PERTINENT CONSTRUCTION DATA. SOIL AND WATER CONTENT SAMPLES WERE TAKEN. TESTS WERE MADE OF DENSITY, SOIL CONSTANT, COMPACTION, CONSOLIDATION, TRIAXIAL COMPRESSION, AND MECHANICAL ANALYSIS TO DETERMINE RELATIONS BETWEEN SOIL TYPES, SOIL CONDITION, AND PUMPING.
