Abstract or Summary
  • Full scale test roads combined with a theoretical analysis were used to evaluate the benefits of incorporating a fabric as a base course support material for gravel paved roads. One material, a synthetic, nonwoven, polypropylene fabric was used in this investigation. This fabric was used on top of the subgrade to construct several full scale test road sections which were incorporated into the normal road building operation of a managed forest located in southwestern Washington. The results of theoretical analysis and the full scale field tests indicate the benefits of incorporating a fabric into the pavement structure are: a) it serves as a filter between the base course and the subgrade, b) it better distributes the loads to the subgrade and c) it facilitates construction over very soft soils. The situations where the use of a fabric may be economically feasible were examined and preliminary design and construction procedures were proposed for low volume gravel paved roads incorporating a fabric as a base course support material.
