Rigid and flexible pavement model tests were conducted to evaluate methods for assessing the structural benefits imparted to a pavement structure by stabilized elements. Current Corps of Engineers rigid pavement design and evaluation methods are based on stress in the concrete pavement as calculated by the Westergaard algorithm. This method appears applicable for pavements containing lime and bituminous stabilized layers only. Cement stabilized layers should be evaluated by an elastic layered algorithm. The California Bearing Ratio method of design and evaluation of flexible pavement structure appeared to yield satisfactory results for flexible pavements containing stabilized elements.
