Document Type: Journal Paper


Investigation of conditions under pavements on 13 airfields over period of several years indicates that base course and subgrade moisture contents become stabilized after about 2 yr; moisture contents in upper 18 in. were not found to be related to rainfall, contrary to those at 30 in.; CBR design procedures are conservative for nonplastic, but about right for plastic materials.
