Methodology to standardize the design of surface foundations of the soil of the city of Pucallpa

Project: Research

Project Details


The floor of Pucallpa is prone to suffer pronounced deformations, swellings and contractions that do not obey precisely the construction stage. This research proposes a new methodology that facilitates the standardization of the design of surface foundations in the soils of the city of Pucallpa, Ucayali; In addition to obtaining the parameters of the laboratory results to apply it to a constitutive model that provides a soil behavior closer to reality. The study will offer the results of the physical characterization and identification laboratory tests, as well as consolidated orthometric and triaxial tests on samples molded by static compaction, carried out in the Geotechnical Laboratory of the University of Lima.
