Title: Investigation of No. 10 Screenings for Subgrade Soil Improvement
Contact: M. Shabbir Hossain
Project No.: 114311
Target Date: 10/31/2021
Abstract: The objective ofthis research is to study a matrix of several sources of #10 "dry"screenings with several marginal soil types at various mixture rates, anddetermine engineering improvements in California Bearing Ratio (CBR), density,plasticity reduction, drainage characteristics and resilient modulus.  The study would include a literature review,state DOT survey, laboratory studies, and pilot projects  after the laboratory work. A specialprovision will be developed providing guidance on use of screenings to improvepoor subgrade conditions.
