Geotechnical Aspects of Pavement Engineering will introduce the field of pavement engineering, including field exploration and testing methods. The proposed text will be a useful handbook for practicing engineers for the selection of appropriate field-testing methods for characterizing materials. The book will also cover the appropriate treatment and/or design methods applicable to various field conditions during pavement foundation construction. In most situations, traditional geotechnical exploration and testing methods are used to characterize the existing subgrade conditions. However, with the introduction of new Mechanistic-Empirical (ME) pavement design methods, there is a need for upgraded ways to characterize these existing materials to facilitate the accurate prediction of future pavement conductions. The geotechnical aspects of pavement engineering differ from traditional geotechnical engineering due to the differences in the load application mechanism. Traditional geotechnical engineering generally deals with static, concentrated or distributed, high magnitude loading situations, while pavement structures mostly deal with repeatedly applied, fast moving and dynamic loading situations. Additionally, the effects of environmental and climatic factors play a major role in the condition of pavement structures due to their proximity and exposure to the atmosphere. Geotechnical Aspects of Pavement Engineering focuses specifically on topics such as material characterization methods, material properties for pavement designs, environmental and climate effects, design details for unusual field conditions and construction and design verification. With the introduction of the new ME pavement design methods, an emphasis on collecting reliable material's property data has been recently observed. This is due to the ability to specify material inputs, thereby giving engineers the ability to reliably predict pavement performance when properly calibrated performance models are used. The majority of the materials used above the subgrade line of a pavement structure are engineered; hence they can be composed and tested for accurate material properties. However, subgrade materials show considerable variability from one location another in terms of their engineering properties. Therefore, accurate and easy to use methods for characterizing pavement subgrade material properties have been gaining popularity. This book is unique, in that it will be the only one of it's kind primarily devoted to the coverage of the geotechnical aspects of pavement engineering.

Material characterization is a critical component of modern day pavement analysis, design, construction, quality control/quality assurance, management, and rehabilitation. At each stage during the life of a project, the influence of several fundamental engineering material parameters on the long-term performance of the pavement can be predicted using advanced tools like the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials Mechanistic- Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG). Consequently, there is a need for more information about material properties, which are addressed only to a limited extent with currently available resources for performing laboratory and field testing. Reliable correlations between material parameters and index properties offer a cost-effective alternative and are equivalent to the level 2 MEPDG inputs. The Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) database provides data suitable for developing predictive models for Portland cement concrete (PCC) materials, stabilized materials, and unbound materials, as well as other design-related inputs for the MEPDG. This user's guide provides a summary of the models developed, describes their applications for specific project conditions, and lists their limitations. The following models are included: PCC materials: Compressive strength, flexural strength, elastic modulus, tensile strength, and coefficient of thermal expansion; Stabilized materials: Elastic modulus of lean concrete base; Unbound materials: Resilient modulus of fine-grained and coarse-grained materials; and Rigid pavement design features: Pavement curl/wrap effective temperature difference for jointed plain concrete pavement and continuously reinforced concrete pavement designs.

Ground tire rubber (GTR) stockpiles have been increasing across the state of Florida now that GTR use in hot mix asphalt design has reduced significantly over the past decade. Therefore, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is interested in finding possible reuse applications for this material. One possible reuse would be as a blend the GTR with FDOT approved subgrades soils for roadway construction. The objective of this research was to determine the changes in the common pavement subgrade engineering behavior as various GTR percentages were added. Three subgrades were chosen based on their respective Limerock Bearing Ratio (LBR), labeled Low, Medium, and High LBR material in relation to required specifications. The 1-inch, 3/8-inch, and #40 mesh GTR sizes were used throughout testing to determine how the size of GTR particle affected the key engineering properties. GTR blend percentages corresponding to 1/2, 1, 2, and 4-inch lifts in a 12-inch subgrade were chosen, producing blends of 4, 8, 16, 24 and 32 percent by volume of GTR to Subgrade material. LBR, Constant Head Permeability, and Consolidation Tests were performed on the GTR/subgrade blends to determine the key pavement engineering design characteristics. Sieve analysis and optimum moisture content results were provided with each subgrade material by FDOT State Materials Office (SMO). The addition of GTR in any percentage decreased the density and LBR of the blends. Density decreases could be advantageous if the materials were used as backfill behind retaining structures, however the LBR decrease would not be advantageous in pavement systems. Blends with the smallest GTR, #40 mesh, did show slightly increased compressibility throughout the range of testing, however the values obtained from testing indicate almost instantaneous settlement due to the granular grain size distribution of the blends. There was no significant change in permeability with increasing GTR percentages. Overall, the results indicate that adding any percentage of GTR to the three FDOT subgrade materials would adversely affect the density and LBR, and have very little effect on the consolidation and permeability. It is recommended that further research should be conducted to evaluate whether soil/GTR blends would be suitable for low-density fill applications.

The term “soft computing” applies to variants of and combinations under the four broad categories of evolutionary computing, neural networks, fuzzy logic, and Bayesian statistics. Although each one has its separate strengths, the complem- tary nature of these techniques when used in combination (hybrid) makes them a powerful alternative for solving complex problems where conventional mat- matical methods fail. The use of intelligent and soft computing techniques in the field of geo- chanical and pavement engineering has steadily increased over the past decade owing to their ability to admit approximate reasoning, imprecision, uncertainty and partial truth. Since real-life infrastructure engineering decisions are made in ambiguous environments that require human expertise, the application of soft computing techniques has been an attractive option in pavement and geomecha- cal modeling. The objective of this carefully edited book is to highlight key recent advances made in the application of soft computing techniques in pavement and geo- chanical systems. Soft computing techniques discussed in this book include, but are not limited to: neural networks, evolutionary computing, swarm intelligence, probabilistic modeling, kernel machines, knowledge discovery and data mining, neuro-fuzzy systems and hybrid approaches. Highlighted application areas include infrastructure materials modeling, pavement analysis and design, rapid interpre- tion of nondestructive testing results, porous asphalt concrete distress modeling, model parameter identification, pavement engineering inversion problems, s- grade soils characterization, and backcalculation of pavement layer thickness and moduli.
