TENSILE PROPERTIES OF SUBGRADES FOR USE IN RIGID PAVEMENT DESIGN

A SERIES OF EVALUATION EXPERIMENTS WAS RUN ON ASPHALT-TREATED, LIME-TREATED, AND CEMENT-TREATED MATERIALS, AND A NUMBER OF USEFUL FINDINGS WERE UNCOVERED WHICH RELATED THE TENSILE PROPERTIES OF THE STABILIZED MATERIALS TO THE PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE COMPONENT ELEMENTS OF THE MIX. A GENERALIZED DESIGN METHOD FOR ALL TYPES OF STABILIZED LAYERS HAS BEEN DEVELOPED FOR USE WITH BOTH PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE AND ASPHALTIC CONCRETE PAVEMENTS. THIS METHOD HAS BEEN ADAPTED FOR COMPUTER DESIGN AND NOMOGRAPHIC METHODS IN ORDER THAT IT MAY BE MORE GENERALLY APPLIED BY FIELD DESIGN PERSONNEL. THIS REPORT PROVIDES A SUMMARY OF FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS, AND A SYNTHESIS OF IMPLEMENTATION IDEAS FOR PUTTING THE FINDINGS OF THE PROJECT INTO PRACTICE. /AUTHOR/
