The good performance of the waterbound macadam single-sized coarse aggregate base type in wet regions has revived interest in this once labourintensive method of base construction. Specifications have been improved and guide-lines given for the mechanized construction of waterbound macadam bases. Density standards have been set for typical waterbound macadam bases and the performance of these bases was compared with that of other high quality granular bases. Guide-lines were given for the determination of effective elastic moduli of typical waterbound macadam bases and the mechanistic analysis of such granular base pavements.
