DETECTION OF FROST-PRONE HIGHWAY BEDS FROM RESPONSE-TYPE SURFACE-ROUGHNESS MEASUREMENTS. FINAL REPORT

A rapid and inexpensive means of detecting frost-susceptible beds in secondary highways must be found to ensure that any frost-prone areas are properly engineered prior to overlay placement. This report describes the use of photologging as a way to detect and catalog frost-prone areas. It also trys to determine whether a relationship exists between summer and winter roughness readings and amounts of frost-susceptible material and available water in the bed soils.
