Specialization Course Road. Highway knots

Specialization course on roads. Knots roadPRESENTATION:

The track is the first aspect to consider when designing a road. In charting a road surface we define geometrically in space. It is thus an essential element of the functionality of the road, or what is the same, the design element most associated with the goal of allowing a comfortable and safe movement.

the 1999-IC Plotting standard Highway Instruction in which the main issues affecting the trunk road relegating subsequent regulations regulating the knots were developed was approved in December 3.1, so they are still governed by in: Recommendations of Intersections (1967); Recommendations Links (1968) and Recommendations Bowers (1989). The age of these regulations and changing aspects of the environmental movement and necessitate new legislation. In this regard the Ministry of Public Works has decided to revise the existing being in advanced stage of drafting the new regulations this course can serve as an exchange of views among participants.

To date they have taught the course three editions: in 2001, 2005 and 2007, this has allowed us to adapt this program to the topics of more interest.

The Polytechnic University of Catalonia and the Spanish Road Association have joined forces through a framework agreement for conducting courses and seminars on different roads, with the aim of disseminating new techniques and knowledge among professionals.

At present and within the same framework agreement course "Graduate Roads" composed of four courses on the following subjects it is contemplated: Charting; Bituminous mixtures; Firm knots and Conservation. For each 2 20 credits for class time they will be given. Those who have completed the four courses will receive the Graduate, validating these effects those who have completed the courses in previous years.
