This fifth edition of Tulsian's Financial Management is a contemporary and comprehensive treatise designed to provide a thorough understanding of the subject in a systematic manner. It integrates the latest trends and current practical applications in financial management. Designed as a self-study text with a to-the-point approach, this popular text is a useful resource for postgraduate students of management
An 'ALRS Stabilized Material Pavement Analysis System' (SPAS) is proposed. An 'intact slab' approach based on ILLI-PAVE analyses and Meyerhof ultimate concepts is recommended. The study of the WES Test Section data indicated the validity of SPAS and facilitated the development of transfer function concepts relating ALRS pavement response to performance. Inputs required to establish the stabilized base thickness for an ALRS pavement (F-4 loading) are the field strength of the stabilized material and the ERi (measure of resilient modulus) of the fine-grained subgrade. A properly designed ALRS pavement for F-4 loading can accommodate a reduced number of C-130 and F-15 load applications. The SPAS thickness design concepts (based on an intact slab approach) are applicable to a broad range of cementitious-stabilized materials (soil-cement, lime-fly ash-aggregate, soil-lime mixtures, similar high-strength and modulus materials).
This report documents research to develop concepts for structurally designing ALRS for use in areas that experience seasonal frost. Three test sections were designed, constructed, and traffic-tested to failure One test section, constructed using about 3.3 inches of asphaltic concrete pavement, 10.5 inches of crushed stone base course, and 10.5 inches of crushed shoulder stone subbase above the delay subgrade, sustained about 10 percent more coverage with the F-15 loadcart than the minimum operational requirements. The other two test sections failed to meet the minimum operational requirements. The traffic tests were conducted after the test section had undergone two freeze-thaw cycles. Frost penetrated into the clay subgrade about 15 inches during both freezing cycles. A revised design procedure for ALRS pavements in cold regions is recommended. The revised procedure will cause thicker ALRS pave ments than previously planned.
