Premature failure is a manmade phenomenon. For surfacing to perform properly, the G1 base needs to provide a well-knit aggregate mosaic.

He makes success easy for the contractor by describing anomalies that must be avoided in preparing the base, and listing signs indicating that optimum interlock has been achieved.
