Tests conducted to develop performance criteria for evaluating strength contributions made by subbases to pavement structure; static load tests were made on isolated rectangular uncurled concrete panels 6 in. thick supported by dense graded, well compacted granular subbases of different thicknesses over clay subgrade with modulus of subgrade reaction (k) of 100; results reported.
