Field, in-place nonrepetitive static load tests are used for the evaluation and design of pavement structures. Nonrepetitive static plate load tests are performed on soils and unbound base and subbase materials to determine the modulus of subgrade reaction or a measure of the shear strength of pavement components.View Less
1.1 This test method covers the making of nonrepetitive static plate load tests on subgrade soils and pavement components, in either the compacted condition or the natural state, and provides data for use in the evaluation and design of rigid and flexible-type airport and highway pavements.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
