CBR and K-value to Modulus of Elasticity (E) conversion

CBR and K-value to Modulus of Elasticity (E) conversion

For existing pavements originally designed using the California Bearing Ratio (CBR) method, the subgrade modulus can be determined from direct soil testing or using the available CBR values and converting them to an equivalent Modulus of Elasticity using the relationship that appears here.

Soil Ternary Diagram

Soil Ternary Diagram

The ternary diagram is a three-dimensional graphical representation that illustrates the relative distribution of three components in a mixture. In the context of soil classification, these components are clay, silt, and sand. The use of ternary diagrams in geology and soils has evolved over time to visualize proportions and relationships among these three fundamental elements.

Jackson and Moreland

Jackson and Moreland

Jackson and Moreland charts are fundamental tools in structural design, specifically in determining critical values for the effective length factor k in axially compressed members. These charts, based on a series of structural assumptions, have been developed to simplify the calculation process, offering a visual representation of relationships between different parameters.
