ESTIMATIONS OF INDIRECT TENSILE STRENGTHS FOR CEMENT-TREATED MATERIALS

TO EVALUATE THE PAVEMENT DESIGN PROCEDURE DESCRIBED IN A PREVIOUS PAPER BY THE SAME AUTHORS IN THIS RECORD, PERFORMANCE DATA WERE OBTAINED FROM IN-SERVICE PAVEMENTS. HOWEVER, THERE WAS NO INFORMATION CONCERNING THE TENSILE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VARIOUS MATERIALS USED IN THEIR CONSTRUCTION. THEREFORE, AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO DEVELOP CORRELATIONS BETWEEN INDIRECT TENSILE STRENGTH AND THE RESULTS OF BOTH THE COHESIOMETER TEST AND THE UNCONFINED COMPRESSION TEST, WHICH ARE AND HAVE BEEN USED BY THE TEXAS HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT TO EVALUATE CEMENT-TREATED MATERIALS. THE PRIMARY PURPOSE FOR THESE CORRELATIONS WAS TO PROVIDE A MEANS OF ESTIMATING THE TENSILE STRENGTHS OF CEMENT-TREATED SUBBASES USED IN RIGID PAVEMENTS CURRENTLY IN SERVICE IN ORDER THAT THE PERFORMANCE DATA COLLECTED DURING THE LIFE OF THE PAVEMENT CAN BE USED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE SUBBASE DESIGN PROCEDURE WITHOUT THE NECESSITY TO WAIT FOR TEST SECTIONS TO BE DESIGNED, APPROVED, FUNDED, AND CONSTRUCTED. /AUTHOR/
