MetadataShow full item record
This project is about the development of a guide and a computational tool for the design of flexible pavements, which will be useful for municipal units road management techniques as well as the Ministry of Public Works and Transport. The execution of this work seeks to develop a guide that includes steps and the different values of the parameters to be considered to create a structural design for a flexible pavement. Also want to study the value of truck factors for different types of vehicles and with it a comparison with currently used by the sub Geotechnical and Materials. For development of project were used different literary sources to define the variables in a design of a pavement, and the use of computer packages for the spreadsheet. This gave a guide and calculation tool for pavement design and rehabilitation, as well as to analyze the performance of a pavement fatigue and permanent deformation. In conclusion it can be mentioned that the use of the guide and spreadsheet will expedite and facilitate the design of the pavement structure and with it benefit the institution in charge of the project.
