Project Details

Title:Characterization of Crushed Bases in Wyoming
Principal Investigators:Kam Ng and Khaled Ksaibati
University:University of Wyoming
Grant #:DTRT13-G-UTC38 (MAP21)
Project #:MPC-503
RH Display ID:150834
Keywords:aggregates by gradation, base course (pavements), crushed aggregates, fines (materials), mechanistic-empirical pavement design, moisture content, plan implementation


The proposed research serves as complementary study to enhance the pavement design in Wyoming through the characterization of base materials. This research project has the following objectives: a) characterize the properties of local base materials; b) understand the effects of rock type, moisture content, fine content and gradation on base monulus; c) improve base modulus estimations; and d) facilitate the full Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG) implementation in the state of Wyoming.
