Design and use of geotextiles in road construction

The use of geotextiles in road construction was shown to give improved performance and/or reduced thickness of aggregate layer required to provide a given level of performance. Various mechanisms responsible for the beneficial effects are presented. Laboratory experiments are described and the test results are presented to verify the various reinforcing mechanisms and to demonstrate the beneficial effects of aggregate savings and improvement of performance. Various design methods are used to illustrate typical ranges in aggregate savings which may be effected by use of fabric (a).
