SELECTIVE LITERATURE SURVEY-RESPONSE OF PAVEMENT SUBGRADES

THIS SURVEY IS CONCERNED WITH LITERATURE DISCUSSING THE STRESS-STRAIN RELATIONS OF IDEALIZED HOMOGENEOUS COHESIONLESS PARTICLATE SYSTEMS /SAND/ WHICH WOULD BE USEFUL TO PREDICT THE RESPONSE OF PAVEMENT SUBGRADES. THE INTEREST IN THE SURVEY IS FOCUSED UPON DETERMINING WHAT FACTORS AFFECT THE STRESS-STRAIN RELATIONS AND HOW, BUT NOT NECESSARILY WHY, THEY AFFECT. THREE STRESS-STRAIN THEORIES FOR GRANULAR MATERIALS ARE REVIEWED' THE ROWE THEORY, THE TEXAS TRANSPORTATION INSTITUTE THEORY, AND THE SHELLHAMNER THEORY. THE BIBLIOGRAPHY CONTAINS 47 REFERENCES PERTAINING TO THEORETICAL DERIVATIONS, LABORATORY STUDIES AND FIELD STUDIES. /AUTHOR/
