Types of tests and criteria for the mixture design of emulsion treated bases and surfaces have been reviewed. A laboratory testing program was conducted to investigate the effort of curing conditions and compaction on the stability and resilient modulus of emulsion stabilized sands. Based on the laboratory study, several sands have been suggested for use as pavement base courses. An interim test method has been suggested for use by the Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation. /Author/
