Report Date:  06/24/2009


Researchers made progress toward developing a mathematical model that provides a physics-based, mechanistic correlation between the California bearing ratio, resilient modulus and dynamic cone penetrometer tests. To accomplish this objective, researchers investigated and modeled relationships between the basic material properties of unbound aggregates, including the interaction of individual particles.
