BASIC SOIL TEST ON SUB-GRADE SOIL MATERIAL & FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT DESIGN ON ROAD LINKING " UGWUAJI AND CAMPUS M, IMT; ENUGU, ENUGU STATE
OKECHUKWU CHUKWUMA S. CE/N2002/040
Department of Civil Engineering
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.
