IMPROVED DRAINAGE AND FROST ACTION CRITERIA FOR NEW JERSEY PAVEMENT DESIGN - PHASE 2: FROST ACTION

With the assistance of the Federal Highway Administration, the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is studying the feasibility of including open-graded drainage layers in their highway pavements. Before constructing actual pavements with open-graded drainage layers they chose to analytically examine the influence of the drainage layer on frost penetration beneath hypothetical pavements, CRREL conducted the analytical study under a contract with the NJDOT. Thermal conductivity values of several New Jersey soils, stabilized drainage layer materials, and pavement samples were measured. /FHWA/
