LOAD-DEFLECTION BEHAVIOR OF LIME-STABILIZED LAYERS

The static and dynamic load-deflection response of soil-lime pavement layers was investigated. Soil-lime mixture layers 6, 9, and 12 in. thick were compacted over a stiff subgrade (k=450 psi/in.) and a soft subgrade (k=50 psi/in.). The soil-lime layers were statically and dynamically loaded after curing periods of 2, 14, 28, and 56 days. Supplemental subgrade soil and soil-lime mixture property data were also developed. The load-deflection data are summarized and analyzed. Various pavement behavior theories are evaluated to determine their capability to predict the load-deflection behavior of soil-lime pavement layers.
