Swapan Kumar Bagui;


Quality road aggregates have become rare and costly in many places in India due to massive construction activities required for the development of new infrastructure facilities. The pavement industry seeks ways of improving lower quality materials that are readily available for use in roadway construction. Cement treatment has become an accepted method for increasing the strength and durability of soils and marginal aggregates. However, cement-stabilized bases can also be the source of shrinkage cracks in the stabilized base layer, which can reflect through the asphalt surface. Introducing “Interface Layer of Aggregates (ILA)” between stabilized base and bituminous concrete (BC) layer appears to be very favorable. The present paper presents the determination of resilient modulus of ILA using FPAVE software. Figures have been developed to determine resilient modulus, varying the CBR value, the thickness of cement treated base and the thickness of interface layer of aggregates which is useful to determine the pavement thickness for cement treated base.
