BEHAVIORAL CHARACTERISTICS OF GRAVELLY SAND AND CRUSHED LIMESTONE FOR PAVEMENT DESIGN

Repeated load triaxial compression tests were conducted to develop and establish laboratory equipment and procedures for determining the resilient properties and rutting potential of cohesionless soils. Materials tested were a crushed limestone and gravelly sand, which were used as base and subbase course layers, respectively, in prototype pavement test sections a the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station.
