El daño primario considerado en el diseño de la guía es la siguiente: The SNP inserts an adjustment factor depending on the depth of the layer. It also allows the user to predict the evolution of existing pavements, what helps to propose actions to extend their useful life and to avoid failures otherwise unexpected. In addition, parameters related to climate change should also be included. Comparison between a 3-D finite element pavement model and the mech- anistic-empirical pavement design guide for asphalt pavements. Therefore, it leads to less precise predictions at high temperatures and low load frequencies. For its part, the two-dimensional finite elements Disturbed State Concept DSC2D model, only available at the first level of accuracy, takes into account the nonlinear behavior of unbound materials.

Por ejemplo las teorías desarrolladas por Westergaardy en los años 20 y 30 del siglo XX se han usado extensivamente en diseño de pavimentos de hormigón. It is used in the case of heavily trafficked highways or for the analysis of areas with high level of distresses or serious safety problems. Load spectra of traffic input.
Thus, certain designs are therefore accepted without considering other possibilities that could provide a more desirable response to external loads and better recoup the allocated investment. Roughness Roughness is the parameter that best defines the quality of the rolling of a pavement, since a road with irregularities on its surface may lead to vibrations in vehicles and, therefore, to inconveniences and dangers to users.
Thermal transverse cracking Thermal cracking is caused by the fragility the pavement acquires due to the decrease of temperature or to thermal fatigue. The expected traffic loads on a road with the same category are also considered in this case. Until the midth century, American engineers designed pavements simply on the basis of their experience.
Based on the structural number of the former AASHTO design method, softwxre which a structural coefficient is assigned to each layer.

As it has been already pointed out, a lot of studies support the degree of certainty of its predictions. The program does not consider bituminous mixes as sotfware materials, thus simplifying their behavior as linear elastic and preventing them from characterizing the time-frequency-temperature dependence of their response. Finalmente, como resultado de esta etapa, se logra establecer un procedimiento de comprobación de algunos de los criterios de la mencionada guía haciendo especial énfasis en las modificaciones que deben ser incluidas en el software para comenzar su adaptación a las condiciones de nuestro país.
Por ello algunos países fuera de EEUU ya han importado y softwzre este método, lo que al mismo tiempo permite a la comunidad científica llevar a cabo estudios comparativos y mejorar sus pequeñas deficiencias. Models incorporated into the current Enhanced Softare Climatic Model. Some of them base the study of traffic on the idea of equivalent single axles loads e.

Climate Climate changes have a great influence in the behavior of pavements. Therefore, in order to use this program successfully, its models must be calibrated with a great amount of local data Li, Alize, Ladywhereas others which are more evolved allow the user to define these loads e.
To sum up, it is possible to affirm that the main objective of the MEPDG is to predict the deteriorations of pavement already constructed or not throughout its useful life, whereas that of the HDM-IV is to make a life cycle analysis of different pavement usually already constructed maintenance alternatives.
It is necessary to study in depth how sensible the results provided by the MEPDG are in order to establish the degree of certainty of each input. Another key factor related to traffic is the variation in its distribution per lane, which is supposed to show a normal probability.
The values provided must be compared with those considered as thresholds Table 1 in order to accept or refuse the initial design. Agrietamiento por fatiga 3. The most commonly used for ordinary design.
Example of a normal distribution function softwars of the IRI Source: The main inputs for flexible pavements are the following. Por ejemplo las teorías desarrolladas por Westergaardy en los años 20 y 30 del siglo XX se han usado extensivamente en diseño de pavimentos de hormigón. They require too many inputs that, in most cases, must be poorly estimated.
Simply, the designer must be aware of what he is looking for. In practice, the choice of one sofrware another level necessarily involves calculating a higher or a smaller number of inputs. It must be highlighted that this paper is focused on the analysis of flexible pavements with bituminous mixes hot, cold, warm or half-warm, either recycled or notbut the accuracy of the method in the study of unbounded, stabilized or concrete layers, etc.
Despite the power of this database, the accuracy of the results depends on the possibility of obtaining precise additional information of the construction area. Data such as wheel spacing, tire type, pressure, etc.
Nevertheless, this is not its ultimate purpose and, therefore, their results are often less precise than those of design programs and, particularly, meppdg those provided by the MEPDG. La demanda de caminos transitables en cualquier época del año, adecuados a la velocidad creciente de los vehículos a motor motivó el desarrollo de procedimientos de diseños y de nuevas tecnologías. Diseño de pavimentos;Método de elementos finitos;Transito de vehiculos pesados.
Journal of Applied Physics, 16, As the previous methods, they do not have different levels of accuracy to carry out the analysis and it is not possible to set up particular levels of reliability softwwre the outputs.
