Abstract : The report summarizes the results of a field and laboratory study to evaluate the strength and durability of stabilized layers under existing pavements. Eight sites in different geographic and climatic regions of the country were tested, using lime and cement as the stabilizing agents. Tests performed on the subgrade were laboratory and field California Bearing Ratio, unconfined compression, moisture-density, classification, and x-ray diffraction analysis. (Author)
