The purpose of this investigation is to determine the relationship between the pumping of rigid pavements and the modified California Bearing Ratio of the subgrade soil beneath the pavement. Ultimately, the objective is to combine data from this research with those from other related studies and provide a design criteria for eliminating or minimizing, in the most economical way, pumping of rigid pavements, particularly when soils of uncertain quality are encountered.
