The presentation deals with the use of unbound granular materials (UGMs) in pavement construction. The main mechanical properties associated with UGMs are resilient modulus and permanent deformation: their assessment is explained and models are presented. Furthermore, it is possible to enhance these mechanical properties by using non-traditional additives: promising laboratory results are presented and discussed. This is particularly relevant for aggregates not satisfying code requirements. Results from an ongoing in-situ test characterize further the use of the additives.
