Abstract:

This report reviews the engineering behavior of pavement materials with respect to highway and aircraft loadings and environmental conditions. The materials covered are bituminous mixtures, portland cement concrete, granular materials, chemically stabilized soils, and fine-grained soils. Basic properties of each are discussed. Factors influencing engineering properties and properties of stabilized soils with respect to strength, modulus, and fatigue are discussed. For fine-grained subgrade soils, discussions also concentrate on the resilient and plastic properties. Constitutive stress-strain relations are presented with respect to resilient, static, viscoelastic, plastic, dynamic, and shear properties. The modulus of subgrade reaction used in rigid pavements and the nature of expansive soils in relation to rigid pavement design are discussed.
