    Field permeability of the subbase is varied because of in situ gradation variations at the same job site and appears to be higher in some cases than indicated by the laboratory tests. Field permeability tests conducted as part of a nationwide study by L. K. Moulton and Roger Seals of West Virginia University on PennDOT subbase indicate per­. The purpose of pavement base and subbase courses is to provide a meansfor free water to drain from • To construct a permeability device anddevelop a procedure that will permit determination of in situ base permeability. RESEARCH TASKS: 1- To investigate the permeability of ODOT aggregate, aggregate, #57 stone, #67 stone, "New.

    In fact, the subbase courses usually are typically studied together with the base course, therefore, the influence of subbase course on pavement performance is correspondingly slight compared to the base course, especially for the inherent mechanism. The functionality of unbound layers, exclusively for the protective frost-resistant layer.

    It is the ratio of force per unit area required to penetrate a soil mass with standard circular piston at the rate of mm/min. to that required for the corresponding penetration of a standard material. The California Bearing Ratio Test (CBR Test) is a penetration test developed by California State Highway Department (U.S.A.) for evaluating the bearing capacity of subgrade .   • Permeability is a property of soil which allows a water or any fluid to pass through it • Methods of determination of permeability in field is shown in fig. 3 4. Pumping test • The purpose of pumping test is to get the information of permeability; • Pumping test is the active way to get k, the permeability.

DETERMINATION OF THE IN SITU PERMEABILITY OF BASE AND SUBBASE COURSES The development of a prototype in situ test device, designated the field permeability testing device (FPTD), for determination of the permeability of highway base and subbase courses is described and discussed.

The research consisted of two phases. Determination of the in situ permeability of base and subbase courses / By Roger K. Seals and United States. The development of a prototype in situ test device, designated the field permeability testing device for determination of the permeability of highway base and subbase courses is described and discussed.

The feasibility of in situ permeability measurement techniques was investigted which led to the selection of the velocity method of in situ permeability determination Cited by: 5.

This paper presents a new method for the determination of horizontal and vertical permeability of unbound base courses. The procedure consists of an infiltration test, during which water from a controlled source infiltrates the base course, and the k-value is calculated by measuring the flow rate for various source pressures.

The present work represent a primary attempt to evaluate the coefficient of permeability of five types of base materials confirmed with S.O.R.B. specifications, (State. Since there was no standard procedure for measuring the in-situ permeability of a granular subbase material, a procedure was developed to obtain a relative idea of the permeability of the material.

This simple procedure consisted of coring out approximately a   The results of the in situ tests on sub base which had been in place for two years indicate a field permeability of greater than 2 x 3 m/s.

The results in test No. 6 are the most variable and give one reading below the design criteria. This test method covers the determination of the coefficient of permeability by a constant-head method for the laminar flow of water through granular soils.

The procedure is to establish representative values of the coefficient of permeability of granular soils that may occur in natural deposits as placed in embankments, or when used as base courses under pavements. measured makes possible the determination of the interface permeability, A reliable estimate of the in-situ permeability of a porous layer in the subsurface is extremely difficult to obtain.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Rapid determination of the in-situ hydraulic conductivity for pavement subbase/base layers is critical to ensure that the constructed product meets the design and performance expectations.

Currently, no widely accepted specifications or test methods exist for QA/QC of in-situ hydraulic conductivity.

Performance evaluation of the ERIK device showed good reproducibility with a coefficient of variation equal to 7% and repeatability at a 95% confidence interval. The results suggested that the ERIK device is a viable option for field determination of in situ permeability.

This method describes the determination of the in situ water permeability of asphalt surfacing and/or base course layers and is based on the principle of the falling head permeameter. In-situ CBR Test Apparatus, used for the in-situ determination of the bearing capacity of UTS Conversion Frame is used to convert the IN-situ CBR test to a mechanical laboratory CBR test machine.

This guide to CTB discusses its applications, benefits, design, construction, testing, and performance. • Subgrade bearing capacity, uniformity, and permeability are key factors in determining various pavement layers thickness.
