I. Pavement Design B. California Bearing Ratio (CBR) 1. The California bearing ratio (CBR) is a penetration test for evaluation of the mechanical strength of road subgrades and basecourses. It was developed by the California Department of Transportation.

I. Pavement Design B. California Bearing Ratio (CBR) 1. The California bearing ratio (CBR) is a penetration test for evaluation of the mechanical strength of road subgrades and basecourses. It was developed by the California Department of Transportation. 2. The test is performed by measuring the pressure required to penetrate a soil sample with a plunger of standard area. The measured pressure is then divided by the pressure required to achieve an equal penetration on a standard crushed rock material.

5. Determine the percent of compacted crushed stone values for the 0.1 and 0.2 penetration. “The Gold Standard” for CBR for 0.1” of penetration, 1000 psi for 0.2” of penetration, 1500 psi Example above: for 0.1” of penetration, 220 psi for 0.2” of penetration, 300 psi The standard material for this test is crushed California limestone

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
