EARTHWORK AND SUB-GRADE PREPARATION
o Thickness of subgrade is 500 mm (NH -65)
o subgrade is may be situated on embankment or excavation or
existing ground
o compaction of soil is done at optimum moisture content(OMC)to
achieve maximum dry density.
o compacting equipment used pneumatic tyred roller, vibratory
roller , by watering.
o material composion (analyses by sieve anyasis method)




o method of stabilization of soil subgrade
1. bitumen stabilization (used in NH 65)
2. adding calcium chloride
IS specification Used in-NH-65
Clay content < 5% 1.5%
Silt content 9 to 34% 22%
Sand content 60 to 80% 76.5%
2. GRANULAR SUB COURSE

o purpouse
1. It provide good drainage facility to the pavement.
2. It strengthen the pavement layer
3. It distribute or spreading the load uniformly.

particle should be equi dimensional with rough surface texture.
Construction:
Granular subbase are typically constructed by spreading the
materials in thin layers compacting each layer by rolling over it with
heavy compaction equipment to achieve a density greater or
equal to 70% relative density.
Thickness Requirement:
The thickness of the subbase is 6 inches with a minimum of
4 inches. Additional thickness beyond 6 inches could allow
consolidation of the subbase over time as traffic loads
accumulate. Pavement problems may result from this consolidation
