USE OF FABRICS IN ROAD PAVEMENTS CONSTRUCTED ON PEAT

The paper shows practically that the use of fabric as a separation membrane between a pavement fill and a soft subgrade soil is beneficial in preventing mixing of the fill and subgrade. On such weak soils as peats it was considered possible that fabrics may also act as a reinforcing element in the pavement construction. To ascertain the value and preferred properties of such a fabric a series of plate bearing tests have been performed on all the elements of a peat-fabric-fill system.
