16. ABSTRACT
This is the Reference Manual and Participants Workbook for the FHWA NHI’s Course No.132040 – 
Geotechnical Aspects of Pavements
. The manual covers the latest methods and procedures to address the geotechnical issues in pavement design, construction and performance for new construction, reconstruction, and rehabilitation projects. The manualincludes details on geotechnical exploration and characterization of in place and constructedsubgrades as well as unbound base/subbase materials. The influence and sensitivity of geotechnical inputs are reviewed with respect to the requirements in past and currentAASHTO design guidelines and the mechanistic-empirical design approach developed under  NCHRP 1-37A, including the three levels of design input quality. Design details for drainagefeatures and base/subbase material requirements are covered along with the evaluation andselection of appropriate remediation measures for unsuitable subgrades. Geotechnical aspectsin relation to construction, construction specifications, monitoring, and performancemeasurements are discussed.
