Abstract: A global database of in situ soil test measurements and associated attributes was compiled for use in developing California bearing ratio (CBR) prediction models. From a variety of potential data sources, a collection of U.S. Army and Air Force airfield pavement research and evaluation reports was selected for inclusion. The schema includes data fields for common geotechnical parameters related to airfield pavement strength and geomorphological features associated with soil formation. More than 4,500 records from 46 test sites, representing 10 countries and 4 continents, were gathered and more than 1,500 of these contain field CBR test values. The database includes a wide variety of Unified Soil Classification System (USCS) soil types from a diversity of natural environments. The distribution of the numeric parameters in the database fall within the range of published distributions for natural soils reported in the literature.
