ICYA-4602 Advanced Pavement Design

Modern tendencies in the designing of flexible and rigid pavements point at designs based on deformations and stresses in the different layers of the pavement. These design methodologies are known as mechanicist methodologies, to this end, we present first the main properties of the materials making up the pavement: materials with asphaltic or hydraulic binder, or unbinded materials. We also study the methodologies of stress analysis, and deformations in the layers of pavement. We also describe the procedures of design for different structures of pavement: flexible, with thick asphaltic layers, mixed, reversed and rigid. Finally, we present the fashion of involving within the designs the stochastic variables, and we present the methodologies of optimization that involve construction costs and pavement maintenance.
