COMPACTIBILITY AND STABILITY OF SOILS FOR FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS AND MODIFYING EFFECT OF SMALL AMOUNTS OF CEMENT

ACCELERATED TRAFFIC TESTS WERE CONDUCTED ON PAVEMENTS AND RUNWAYS WHERE FAILURES HAD OCCURRED AND LABORATORY TESTS WERE MADE ON TYPICAL SAMPLES OF MATERIALS. FAILURE OF TEST PAVEMENTS DUE TO PROGRESSIVE INCREASE IN DENSITY OF GRAVEL SURFACE UNDER 100-TON TEST LOAD WAS REVEALED WITH TIRE PRESSURE OF 140 PSI. A SATISFACTORY PERFORMANCE WITH GRAVEL- CEMENT SURFACE COMPARED WITH FAILURE OF GRAVEL SURFACE WAS OBTAINED.
