Objectives

This project will explore the effectiveness of a geocomposite capillary barrier drain to 1) divert infiltrating water from reaching pavement subgrades and 2) prevent the upward capillary flow of water into pavement base courses during freezing. This effort is directed at reducing the total amount of water and length of time that water persists in unbound base courses and in reducing the total amount of water in subgrades.

Subjects: Pavement Design, Management, and Performance Soils, Geology, and Foundations
