Abstract:

In planning and building the main transport trunk roads in regions I and II of the road-climatic zone, it is necessary to solve the question concerning applying the local cohesive soils for building a roadbed. To facilitate the evaluation of these soils silty sandy loams and silty loams and in planning the road designs, the authors method was converted to an algorithm, and was programmed and solved on the Ural-4 computer for more than 150 points in the USSR territory. The adoption of the computer into the planning of road designs in the regions of permafrost and severe climate will favor the formulation of planning the highways on a higher scientific level.
