This report examines CBP"s from several perspectives in order to provide an overview of this alternative pavement technology. First, the CBP system is described. The importance of using the proper bedding sand gradations is stressed and the phenomenon of lock-up, or interlock, is explained. The various design methods for CBP"s are also presented. Here, the concept of equivalency factors is discussed. Next, the structural performance of several CBP projects varying from 1 to 10 years are reviewed.
