Novel Durability Screening Method for Stabilized Geomaterials

Status:  Active
Project Start Date:  06/28/2023


It is a common practice to chemically stabilize marginalized bases, subbases, and subgrade geomaterials to improve their geomechanical properties and durability performances. This research will provide guidance for the selection of appropriate chemical additives and optimized content for their use in pavement construction and design. Phases of the work include literature review, formulation of durability cycle, selection of four soil types and one stabilizer type; engineering, microstructural, and chemical studies; and analysis and recommendation.
