Description
Pavements are constructed on compacted soils and aggregate materials that are typically unsaturated; this means that some of the pores between particles are filled with air instead of water. Keeping these materials unsaturated helps maintain subgrade stiffness and strength. However, soil suction changes as water content changes, and this has a significant effect on the shear strength of a pavement foundation.
