The intent of these low and several reasons, such as constant modification of surveys is to learn the state of practice from these groups test procedures, measurement difficulties, design-related with respect to resilient modulus property determination issues and others, are attributed to the low level of satis- of both bases and subgrades from various methods, includ- faction.
