Abstract : This report presents the values of the modulus of elasticity and Poisson's ratio obtained for three base materials used in airfield pavement construction. These bases were constructed of sand, select base, and crushed rock. Each base was prepared to form a two-layered system with an artificial subgrade. The Burmister layered pavement theory was used to interpret the test results. Values for Poisson's ratio ranged from 0.30 to 0.35. The moduli of elasticity varied from 6600 to 16,400 psi. (Author)
