Technology of Road and Street Construction (R)

Academic Year 2022/23

NMB007 course is part of 1 study plan

NPC-SIR Winter Semester 1st year

Principles of conventional road machinery, mechanisms and production facilities. Technological procedures, basic mechanisms and their use in earthworks, soil treatment and improvement, for the implementation of underlying pavements of unstable materials, stabilized and treated materials by hydraulic binders, asphalt and cement concrete layers. Techniques of blending, transport, laying, compaction and quality control are discussed. Technology and mechanisms for maintenance, repair and recycling of pavements. Documenting major mistakes in performing technological work. In the exercise, according to a specific project, each student will individually design a set of machines and mechanisms for the assigned earthworks, substrates, asphalt layers and other details of road construction and urban communications.
