Nineteen peer-reviewed papers address the latest issues affecting the resilient modulus test and use of the test results. Resilient modulus indicates the stiffness of a soil under controlled confinement conditions and repeated loading. The test is intended to simulate the stress conditions that occur in the base and subgrade of a pavement system.
Repeatability of the test by testing replicated test specimens under the same conditions.
Background of test startup and QC procedures
Review of the LTPP test program
Effect of water content and pore water pressure buildup on the resilient modulus of unsaturated and saturated cohesive soils
Importance of the value of resilient modulus on required pavement thickness
This book is a valuable resource for highway engineers, geotechnical engineers, laboratory personnel who conduct pavement tests, pavement designers, and foundation engineers.
