Subgrade Soil Types and Approximate Subgrade Modulus (k) Values | ||
---|---|---|

Type of Soil | Support Provided | k Values Range (pci) |

Fine-grained soils in which silt and clay-size particles predominate | Low | 50 - 120 |

Sands and sand-gravel mixtures with moderate amounts of silt and clay | Medium | 130 - 170 |

Sands and sand-gravel mixtures relatively free of plastic fines | High | 180 - 220 |

Cement-treated subbases | Very high | 250 - 400 |
