Geomaterials 2009

These 11 papers are concerned with geomaterials. Specific topics discussed are divided into two parts. The first part addresses aggregate characterization and performance through the following topics: a handheld image analysis system; falling weight deflectometer testing; predicting asphalt mixture skid resistance; surface wave testing for the modulus of rubblized portland cement concrete; and testing of recycled pulverized hot-mix asphalt material. The second part looks at the cementitious, chemical, and mechanical stabilization of geomaterials by examining the following topics: water as the key to expansion of ettringite in cementitious materials; differential scanning calorimetry for the validation of sensitivity of sulfate-bearing soils to ettringite growth; environmental impacts on construction of soil-cement pavement layers; carbon dioxide emissions from highway subgrade improvements; geogrids and lime treatment to control dry land longitudinal cracking; and deformation properties of untreated and enzyme-treated bottom ash waste used in foundations.
