Abstract: This proceedings, Application of Geotechnical Principles in Pavement Engineering, contains a compendium of five papers demonstrating a variety of applications of geotechnical principles in the characterization and analysis of pavement structures. These papers discuss the advantages of dynamic confining pressure triaxial testing for characterizing anisotropic subgrade layers; a method for establishing the seasonal effects of moisture on the resilient modulus of subgrade soils through a series of field observations; a method of obtaining subgrade resilient modulus through cone penetrometer testing; a method of establishing the resilient modulus of cohesionless subgrade soils using the gyratory testing apparatus; and finally, the idea of using computer imaging techniques to characterize the microstructure of asphalt concretes and study particle orientation and segregation.
