The objective of this research is to develop correlations for estimating the resilient modulus of various Wisconsin subgrade soils from basic soil properties. A laboratory testing program was conducted on common subgrade soils to evaluate their physical and compaction properties. The resilient modulus of the investigated soils was determined from the repeated load triaxial test following the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) T 307 procedure. The… Expand
