Abstract : The objective of this study was to develop a design system for the use of chemically stabilized soil layers in pavement systems in the theater of operations. Stabilization with only portland cement, lime, and bituminous materials was considered. Two concepts of construction were envisioned in the development of this system: Expedient and nonexpedient construction. The former involves that type of construction effort to be used when constraints of time, material, equipment, etc., dictate a minimization of efforts. The latter involves that type of construction to be used when constraints are less severe but construction effort would be less than what would be termed deliberate. Procedures are provided for selection of type and quantity of stabilization based on soil type. Thickness design curves are presented for design of single- and multiple-layer pavements for both roads and airfields. (Author)
