BASIC SOIL TEST ON SUB-GRADE SOIL MATERIAL & FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT DESIGN

PREFACE

This case study is an existing pathway or fort path linking Ugwuji and Campus 111 (IMT) for a proposed road construction by the government of Enugu State.

This project encloses the following 
–    The condition of the existing sub-grade and its suitability for use as a good sub-grade soil material by processes of different lab test.
–    Using the group index method and CBR method to design a flexible pavement on the pathway under consideration.
–    The optimum moisture content (OMC) and the maximum Dry Density (MDD) which are obtained by various laboratory test with a view of applying corresponding values in the field.
