CONTINUING MEASUREMENTS OF A SWELLING CLAY IN A PONDED CUT
The report continues to explore the effects of ponding, the technique of flooding a clay subgrade with water to cause the soil surface to heave before a pavement is constructed rather than after. Results of observations of the maintenance problems and pavement conditions are noted and an attempt is made to relate the depths of movement and effectiveness of the ponding with the longer range goal of developing a method for reducing costs of roadway life.
