Description: CRREL Report
Abstract: In 1986, Newton Field, a small runway in Jackman, Maine, was reconstructed using a 2-in.-thick layer of extruded polystyrene insulation. At the same time, Nichols Road, a nearby town road, was reconstructed to a conventional, uninsulated cross section. Both Newton Field and Nichols Road were similarly monitored: thermocouples, tensiometers, and groundwater wells were installed during construction, and, following construction, a pavement surface elevation grid was established at each of the test sites for monitoring frost heave. This report discusses the performance of the insulated and uninsulated pavements during the first of four winters of observation.
