Advances in Transportation Geotechnics II bargains with the geotechnics of roads, railways and airfields. offering monetary and sustainable transportation infrastructures for societies is very depending on development made during this box. those contributions to the second overseas convention on Transportation Geotechnics (Hokkaido, Japan, 10-12 September 2012), held less than the auspices of the foreign Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE), hide a vast variety of technical themes, together with these addressed by means of the 1st convention held in Nottingham, united kingdom in 2008.
Advances in Transportation Geotechnics II incorporates a overall of 138 reviewed papers from 29 nations as well as five invited papers ready by means of distinct keynote academics, and addresses the subsequent themes:
- Geotechnics of pavements, railway tracks and airfields;
- Geomaterial, together with non-traditional fabrics;
- Asphalt combinations and hydraulically-bound fabrics;
- Earthworks for transportation amenities;
- program of geosynthetics;
- Laboratory trying out and in-situ checking out;
- Modeling and numerical simulations;
- layout, development and upkeep;
- functionality overview and quality controls;
- Sustainability of administration and rehabilitation;
- probability evaluation and environmental issues.
Advances in Transportation Geotechnics II could be of curiosity to execs and lecturers excited by geotechnical and pavement engineering of roads, railways and airfields.

In this paper, the durability and the load distribution capacity of CFA stabilized base with powdery and slurried cement was evaluated using soil pressure and vertical strain on the top of subgrade at full-scale accelerated loading test. The vertical strain on the top of subgrade caused by moving wheel was illustrated based on the horizontal distance between the wheel and the instrument in Figure 1, respectively. The angle of load distribution was obtained as shown in Figure 2. First, the affected range was identified by drawing two tangents to the response curve for the soil pressure or the vertical strain in Figure 1 (b).

DYNAMIC OBSERVATION MEASUREMENT RESULTS DURING ONGOING CONSTRUCTION WORK The compressibility during and after embankment thickening work is shown next. Construction work was performed at t = 90 cm and the embankment thickness was H ≈ 10 m. 2 m on the entire embankment. 7 meters. In this placement method, the cross-arm is installed on the lowest end at the level where the 3-layer embankment ends and others placed at the second and third levels as the embankment work proceeds.
