A mechanistic thickness-design procedure for soil-lime pavement layers is presented. The procedure, which is based on a stress-dependent finite-element computer model called ILLI-PAVE, is limited to pavements constructed of a cured soil-lime layer and a nonstructural surface course (surface treatment or thin asphalt concrete). Design input data are soil-lime strength and modulus, subgrade resilient modulus, and estimated traffic. The procedure assumes that the soil-lime mixture is capable of developing significant increase in strength (relative to the strength of the natural soil) and that quality field construction and control are achieved.
