SUBGRADE SOILS: AN IMPORTANT FACTOR IN CONCRETE PAVEMENT DESIGN

The importance of subgrade support evaluation in the design, analysis, and construction of concrete pavement has been demonstrated. Subgrade soil strength and stiffness properties significantly influence the structural response (concrete flexural stresses, surface deflection) and the performance of concrete pavement systems. The effects of moisture and temperature factors on fine-grained soil behavior are documented. Techniques for predicting temperature and moisture conditions in pavement systems are considered.
