CBR Values VS Hveem R-Values In Roadway Design

January 12, 2024

When it comes to roadway design and construction, engineers and designers rely on various parameters to ensure the durability, safety, and performance of the road. Two commonly used measurements in roadway design are CBR (California Bearing Ratio) values and Hveem R-Values. In this blog, we will explore the differences between CBR values and Hveem R-Values and discuss their significance in roadway design. 1. Understanding CBR Values: CBR values are used to assess the strength of subgrade soils, which play a critical role in supporting the road pavement. CBR is a measure of the load-bearing capacity of the soil, comparing its... View Article
