Characterization of Crushed Bases in Wyoming

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.
