  • Abstract:
    This report consists of two volumes: Volume I, Pavement Design and Construction Considerations; and Volume II, Mixture Design Considerations. These Two volumes represent the revisions to the original manuals prepared in 1979 by Terrel, Epps, Barenberg, Mitchell, and Thompson. These manuals include new information and procedures incorporated into the pavement field since that time. A significant portion of the information prepared for the original manuals has been retained. The primary purpose of these manuals is to provide background information for those engineers responsible for using soil stabilization as an integral part of a pavement structure. Information is included to assist the engineer in evaluating the drainage problems of a pavement. Sufficient information is included to allow the pavement design engineer to determine layer thicknesses of stabilized layers for a pavement using the 1989 American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials Guide procedures. Material properties are presented with the use of this design procedure, which the materials engineer will find useful in selecting the type and amount of a stabilizer to use with specific soil types. Construction details are presented with elements of quality control and specifications. The manuals are presented to allow an engineer to recommend where, when, and how soil stabilization should be used, and to assist the engineer in evaluating problems which may occur on current stabilization projects. This volume, Volume II, presents the specific details of laboratory testing for the different stabilizer additives. Typical properties are given and the test procedures to select optimum amounts are presented. These chapters provide the engineer with detailed information required from the laboratory to ensure the necessary material properties are obtained in the paving project. Volume I presents the details of drainage and pavement design and construction considerations for stabilization of pavement materials.
