California Bearing Ratio commonly called CBR, method is essentially a test for bearing capacity of ground under an application of load at a low rate of penetration. In actual pavement, it is the dynamic stiffness of pavement which is of paramount importance because the pavement is subjected to repeated loading at low stress levels. Design procedures based on dynamic stiffness can be adopted but difficulties are encountered in selecting appropriate modulus for dynamic stiffness.


This question is taken from book named – A Self Learning Manual – Mastering Different Fields of Civil Engineering Works (VC-Q-A-Method) by Vincent T. H. CHU.
