Moisture: As indicated above, moisture is generally available in pavement systems through capillary rise from the water table, infiltration of moisture from precipitation and lateral moisture transfer. All these sources of water are likely to supply frost action in pavements. 27 28 Chapter Two 3. Frost susceptibility: This is a soil property that describes the ability of water to flow toward a growing ice lens behind the freezing front. High negative pressures are generated at the base of the ice lens letting water flow in a partly frozen zone of soil between the freezing front and the ice lens.

Burminster’s publications also include equations for the calculation of radial, shear and bulk stress, vertical and radial strain as well as vertical displacement. Due to the complexity of the mathematic formulation of Burminster’s equations, several methods based on charts and tables have been published (Jones 1962; Peattie 1962; and others).

Runoff surface water will eventually reach a collector and be evacuated. Infiltrated water will percolate vertically in the pavement structure until it reaches a low permeability surface, such as the interface between the subbase and fine grained subgrade soils or an internal drainage layer. In the first case, water will partly seep into the subgrade soil, but will also flow along the interface toward a collector (ditch or internal drain) if an adequate cross-slope has been prepared during pavement construction.
