Abstract:

This report presents the results of a laboratory model study to observe the behavior of prestressed concrete slabs supported on a low-strength subgrade and tested to complete failure by repetitive loading. The purpose of the study was to develop relationships between magnitude of load, number of load applications, and pavement physical properties. Included in this report is a description of the design of the model, physical properties of the materials comprising the model, test procedures and instrumentation used with the model. The test results are presented with an analysis and discussion. Author
