This study is a continuation of Report 1 of this series that described Series 1 tests which were performed using different field methods of repair and restoration of bomb craters. Results from Series 1 tests showed problem areas that needed correction when the crater repairs were trafficked with full-scale loading. Two series, Series 2 and 3, of tests were run to determine if a the loose stone problem at the surface could be eliminated from the well-graded crushed limestone, b materials could be used that would neither be affected by the weather nor require any compaction equipment, c a crushed aggregate that engineering troops in Germany were trying to use could be stabilized under traffic, d a way could be found to place grout with a minimum of equipment e it was possible to cut down on portland cement concrete curing time, and f an unconventional pavement repair could be used. Testing consisted of accelerated traffic using either single- andor multiple-wheel gear assemblies. Author
