Abstract:

The investigation was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of stabilized structural layers lime- and cement-stabilized layers in pavement performance and to determine the comparative performance between a full-depth high-quality crushed stone and the stabilized layers during simulated aircraft traffic. The comparative performance between the stabilized layers and similar pavements consisting of unbound granular base and subbase materials previously tested in the Multiple Wheel Heavy Gear Load MWHGL test section was also determined. A test section was constructed within two items of the existing MWHGL test section at the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station in order to use the existing 4-CBR clay subgrade.
