Evaluación geotécnica y condiciones climático-ambientales en carreteras destapadas

Main Article Content


Carlos Hernando Higuera Sandoval


Describe las metodologías para la evaluación geotécnica
de los elementos que constituyen la vía, como la
estructura del pavimento y los taludes, y para la
evaluación geotécnica de una fuente de materiales,
metodologías que son aplicables a carreteras destapadas
o de bajos volúmenes de tránsito. Cada metodología se
presenta en un diagrama de flujo, para que el ingeniero
encargado de realizar los estudios pueda aplicarla de
manera fácil y ordenada. Estas metodologías son
producto del proyecto de investigación titulado
“Carreteras destapadas: nociones de diseño,
construcción y mantenimiento, evaluación geotécnica
y condiciones climático-ambientales”, desarrollado por
el Grupo de Investigación y Desarrollo en
Infraestructura Vial (Grinfravial).
