Minimizing Shrinkage Cracking in Cement-Stabilized Bases Through the Use of Microcracking

The objectives of this research study are two-fold: (1) to determine if the micro-cracking technique is suitable for implementing on soil cement pavements in Louisiana; and (2) to evaluate the effectiveness of the micro-cracking on reducing the shrinkage/reflective cracking on soil cement pavements.
