STUDY OF NATURAL VARIATIONS IN HIGHWAY MATERIALS

THE PURPOSE OF THIS STUDY WAS TO OBTAIN AND ANALYZE DATA CONCERNING THE NATURAL VARIATIONS IN PERTINENT QUALITIES OF SOIL, BASE, AND FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT MATERIALS WITH A VIEW TO ESTABLISHING SPECIFICATION LIMITS TO BE USED IN STATISTICAL QUALITY CONTROL OF HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION. THE DATA WAS OBTAINED FROM THE CORPS OF ENGINEERS, FROM PROJECTS CONSTRUCTED FOR EXPERIMENTAL PURPOSES, AS WELL AS AIRFIELD CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS. THE DATA ANALYZED INCLUDE DENSITY AND MOISTURE CONTENT OF SUBGRADES; DENSITY, MOISTURE CONTENT AND GRADATION OF BASE COURSES; AND DENSITY AND AGGREGATE GRADATION OF ASPHALTIC CONCRETE PAVEMENT. STATISTICAL PARAMETERS WERE COMPUTED AND A SAMPLE SPECIFICATION WRITTEN FOR USE IN THE CONTROL OF COMPACTION OF SUBGRADE SOILS. /BPR/
