A good subgrade for road pavement is required to support the traffic load that passes through. The characteristics of the subgrade is determined by the stress-strain behaviour that is expressed as a resilient modulus. The performance of the pavement is affected by characteristics of the subgrade. Characteristics of clay soil generally have a low of bearing capacity, especially to support the load induced by the wheel load of vehicles. Clay soil is very sensitive to changes of temperature and moisture content. The changes of moisture content cause the changes on the subgrade’s resilient modulus value. This paper studies the resilient modulus of the subgrade of clay soil by laboratory testing. To investigate the effect of moisture content, this testing is done on a dry side, OMC condition and wet side. The result shows the difference of the resilient modulus characteristic and deformation that is influenced by the moisture content.
