Diseño de estructuras de pavimentos en afirmado

Main Article Content


Carlos Hernando Higuera Sandoval


Se presenta una metodología para diseñar estructuras
de pavimentos cuya capa de rodadura esté compuesta
por  material  de  afirmado  en  su  totalidad,
entendiéndose  este  como  una  capa  de material
granular destinada a soportar las cargas del tránsito.
La metodología  se  fundamenta  en  los mismos
principios  y  conceptos  tenidos  en  cuenta  para  el
diseño de las estructuras de pavimento flexible, y en
especial  en  la metodología de  la AASHTO  [1]. La
metodología  desarrollada  permite  a  los  ingenieros
de carreteras diseñar de manera  técnica y  rápida el
espesor de una capa de afirmado, teniendo en cuenta
la resistencia de la subrasante y el tránsito estimado
para un periodo de diseño.
