    Abstract: During a massive flood or earthquake, the roads are mainly damaged due to the looseness of the subgrades. In recent times for any new constructions of roads and embankments the subgrades mainly constructed with the sand filling. It is difficult to achieve the desired degree of compaction beyond a certain limit. That’s why the bases (subgrades) beco... Show More
