Soil information needed for slab design

subgrade modulus, k The modulus of subgrade r e a c t i o n — often called the subgrade modulus or k—is a soil property relat-ed to how the soil reacts to load. When a slab and the loads placed on the slab put pressure on the subgrade soil, the soil deforms. It's assumed that the deformation is proportional to the pressure. That is, soil

California Bearing Ratio (CBR) for determining Shear Strength of subgrade

Nov 29, 2013 · California bearing ratio is a widely used method to design the flexible pavements, beside all the limitations it is easy to perform and still does not need any big instruments etc. The value of the CBR test is then compared with the following table to get the quality of material from which the required thicknesses and other parameters are decided.

Subgrades & Subbases for Concrete Slabs The Concrete Network

Jul 31, 2018 · The most commonly used value is the modulus of subgrade reaction, k. This value is not directly related to bearing capacity and k does not tell the designer if there is compressible or expansive soil. What it does is indicate how stiff the subbase/subgrade is over small deflections (about 0.05 inches).
