Characterisation of salt-bearing soils (sabkha) for pavement design purposes in the State of Kuwait

Auther : HASAN AL-SANAD

Department of Civil Engineering, University of Kuwait, P.O. Box 5969, Kuwait

 

ABSTRACT

 

The paper gives an appraisal of sabkha soils in the State of Kuwait and describes some of the pavement design problems. It gives pavement design parameters obtained from a study of the part played by sabkha subgrade soil materials. It also examines both laboratory and field results. The laboratory results include the resilient modulus test, CBR values, and peak shear stress ratio (on a shear box at 10 KN/m2 vertical stress). Field results include measurements of the dynamic deflection parameters from both dynaflect results and a simple impact hammer test.
