Title: Characterization of Subgrade and Subbase/Base materials in Virginia for Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design
Contact: M. Shabbir Hossain
Project No.: 77743
Target Date: 08/29/2008
Abstract: Material characterization is an essential part of pavement design procedure. Subgrade characterization will ensure proper foundation support for the pavement. On the other hand, base/subbase materials provide structural capacity to the pavement. Therefore, both subgrade and base/subbase materials characterization is needed to design adequate pavement structure for design traffic.
