A literature review was conducted to investigate the uses of fabrics in pavements in order to determine their applicability for use in constructing airport pavements on soft soils. Presented are several theories as to how a fabric enhances the performance of a pavement when fabrics are used as a reinforcement or as a separator over soft soils. Several design methods are discussed and results of several field installations are presented. Current test methods and construction techniques are also discussed. Author
