Chert clay soils (IIIC4) having less than 55 percent passing the No. 20 sieve may be considered suitable for subgrade materials. These soils are found generally in the northwest corner of the state in the counties of Dade, Walker, Catoosa, Whitfield, Murray, Chattooga, Gordon and Floyd.
iv ABSTRACT There is lack of correlation between Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) and Soaked California Bearing Ratio (CBR) for local subgrade materials. The aim of this study is to develop relationships between DCP and soaked CBR, DCP and unsoaked CBR, soaked CBR and unsoaked CBR for fine and coarse grained soils.

HMA base course layers should have a coefficient of Layer coefficients of and for granular base and granular subbase materials, respectively, are recommended by AASHTO. Design Period For new HMA pavement, a design life of 20 years was used for the design guide.
Organic Soils. Highly organic soils Peat (Group symbol PT) − A sample composed primarily of vegetable tissue in various stages of decomposition and has a fibrous to amorphous texture, a darkbrown to black color, and an organic odor should be designated as a highly .
.1 Subgrade – the natural insitu material. .2 Subbase – where required, the layer of material provided between the subgrade and the base course. .3 Base course – the layer of base course material, greater than 50mm in depth, immediately underlying the pavement wearing surface.
Additionally, the loading characteristics of the track dictate the required quality of subgrade. These include the type of transport (freight or passenger), train speed, axle loads, train configuration, wheel condition, tie spacing, and rail condition (Neidhart and Shultz, 2011).
It is used to check the subgrade stability and thickness of subgrade treatment during construction. The PR is a function of the insitu shear strength of the material. The strength profile with depth gives an indication of the insitu properties of the materials up to the depth of penetration, which is 40 in.
FROST HEAVE is the raising of a surface due to formation of ice in the underlying soil. FROSTMELTING PERIOD is an interval of the year when the ice in base, subbase, or subgrade materials is returning to a liquid state. It ends when all the ice .

The New Mexico Department of Transportation has rewritten this edition of the Standard Specifications for Highway and Bridge Construction with an emphasis on the active voice. In a sentence written in the active voice, someone acts on something. For example: "The engineer will take a sample."
Subgrade Construction and Stabilization Office of Construction 04/18/02 ... If the subgrade is too wet, the material will displace and rut. If the subgrade is too dry, a dry hard surface crust may carry the proof roller over an undesirable soft wet underlying material without rutting or deflection, and the soft ...
Mar 04, 2016· Marginal materials are these materials that because of either their poor compaction, consolidation, or swelling characteristics would not normally be used as backfill if sources of suitable material were available. Material considered to be marginal include finegrained soils of high plasticity and expansive clays.
Therefore, number of classification systems have been developed depending on the intended purpose of the system. Soil classification has proved to be a very useful tool to the soil gives general guidelines in an empirical manner for making use of the field experience of others. Different Classification of Soils for Engineering Purpose
