Transportation Infrastructure Program

PITRA-LanammeUCR

Ing. Luis Guillermo Loria-Salazar, MSc, PhD

General Director


Areas of expertise

  • Seismicengineering and riskmanagement.

  • Soils and rocksengineering (soilscience).

  • Structuralengineering.

  • Constructionmaterialsengineering.

  • Road engineering (PITRA Program – Law 8114 and 8603).


LEGAL FRAMEWORKLaw 7099

In 1996, Law 7099 givesto LanammeUCR, category of referenceNationalLaboratory in civil and roadinfrastructurefield in Costa Rica


LEGAL FRAMEWORKLaw 8114

Costa RicanReseach

  • Law 7099-1996

    • Establish a National Laboratoryconstructionmaterials LanammeUCR

    • All the construction technologies must be tested and evaluated by LANAMME.

    • Agreement Interamerican Development Bank (BID) and UCR USD 1 million to build the laboratory and acquire initial equipment.


History

LANAMME’spavementlab: 1997

1 Marshall hammer.

2 viscometers.

1 penetrometer.


History

  • The condition of the highway system of Costa Rica in 1997

    • Lack of government control (DOT).

    • Empiricism in the making-decision process.

    • Most of the projects failed nearly after construction.


History

Congresscreated:

LAW 8114: 2002


Law8114

  • FUEL TAX: 30% of the market price of fuels will be used to do rehabilitation of the Costa Rican’ roads and highways.

  • The congress assigned the 1% of the tax to LanammeUCR for accomplishing various objectives.


Law 8114

Objectives

  • Auditing the rehabilitation projects constructed with the DOT funding.

  • Applied research of the problems of the national road network.

  • Technology transfer and acreditation of engineers and technicians.

USD 1,5 billion 2012-1016

PUBLIC INVESTMENT


Law 8114

Objectives:

  • Evaluation of the national road system every two years with high-tech equipments: FWD, RSP, Geo3D, laser macrotexture and Griptester.

  • Advising the municipalities and local governments in QA/QC, pavement design, material design and analysis, PMS,etc.

  • Advising specific needs of the Minister of Transportation.

  • Evaluation of the national bridges system.

  • Developing of the Standard Specs. Manual.
