    Several other ACPA publications,Subgrades and Subbases for Concrete Pavements(1), Design and Construction of Joints for Concrete Streets(2), and Construction Specification Guideline for Concrete Streets and Local Roads(3), discuss the details of subgrades and subbases, jointing practices, and specifications in much greater detail. •ROADS have been wilt with soil-cement for many years, rut few subbases for con­ crete pavements were treated with cement before 19 In 19 38, a 7-mile length of concrete pavement was built on a ft wide by 6-in. deep soil-cement subbase in Oklahoma (1).

    Because of its rigidity, concrete pavement has a high degree of load-spreading capacity which typically results in low sublayer stresses and the potential for concrete pavement slabs to be placed directly on the compacted, natural subgrade. However, it has long been known that adequate subgrades are essential to good concrete pavement performance. Definition of Pavement Types. Design Factors. Load Stresses. Thickness Design.

Subgrades and Subbases for Concrete Pavements ACPA is the premier national association representing concrete pavement contractors, cement companies, equipment and materials manufacturers and suppliers. We are organized to address common needs, solve other problems, and accomplish goals related to research, promotion, and advancing best.

The PCA/ACPA publication Subgrades and Subbases for Concrete Pavements addresses selection and construction of these layers (PCA/ACPA ). Another publication that discusses subbases and bases, specifically for airfields, is Design and Construction Guide for Author: Norbert Delatte.

Pavement Support Basics • Firm, uniform, and non-erodible support is essential for concrete pavements ­ Reduces pavement defections from vehicle loadings ­ Avoids stress concentrations • Must provide a stable working platform to expedite all construction operations • Subgrade uniformity is more important than strength +/- 20 ft.

The Romans built o miles of roads primarily to facilitate the movement of troops and. Subgrades & Subbases Drainage •What was learned from the study Varied Parameter Values Improved PCI with Subbase In order for a concrete pavement to provide long term performance, its foundation needs to have uniform and stable support.

At a minimum, this normally includes. Permeable sub­bases — unstabilized subbases with the amount of fines reduced to a level that increases the perme­ability of the subbase to to 20, ft/day ( to 6, m/day) in laboratory tests — are no longer recommended for concrete pavement because these subbases are not stable over time and violate the funda mental requirement.

Subbases and Subgrades. A reasonably uniform subgrade or subbase, with no abrupt changes in support, is ideal for any concrete pavement.

Most native soils are not too uniform and thus require some improvement or additional layers to compensate. A subbase is a thin layer of material placed on top of the prepared subgrade.

Concrete Pavement Design, Construction and Performance In some cases, however, design or construction errors or poorly selected materials have considerably reduced pavement life. It is therefore impor-tant for pavement engineers to understand materials selection, mixture proportioning, design and detailing, drainage, construction techniques.

Addressing the interactions between the different design and construction variables and techniques this book illustrates best practices for constructing economical, long life concrete pavements.

The book proceeds in much the same way as a pavement construction project. First, different alternatives for concrete pavement solutions are outlined. for concrete streets: 1. Subgrades and subbases 2. Concrete quality 3.

use a mix of data and case studies to show the impact that the base/subbase has on increasing or decreasing the overall concrete pavement performance. The case studies included in this paper. Structural Effects of Subbases.

When not needed to control pumping, an untreated granular subbase does not contribute significantly to the performance and load-carrying capacity of a concrete pavement. Design procedures recognize the improvement in foundation strength when a subbase is used, but the effects on the design thickness are small.

Careful attention to the design and construction of subgrades and subbases is essential to ensure the structural capacity and ride quality of all types of pavements.
