The invention relates to the field of road construction and can be used in the reconstruction of roadbed to struggle with the drawdown of the road base and frost heave problem areas of the road without stopping traffic.

A known design for protection of soil pavement from wetlands, including the floor, Foundation, drainage layer, subgrade, single transverse interceptor drain installed in the top of the concave vertical curve, posted on the project line subgrade containing a perforated drainage pipe with releases on the slopes of subgrade and coarse filter material disposed within the drainage layer and below it on the width of the Foundation (RF Patent No. 2305730, F02D 17/20, 2006).

The known system is intended for drainage areas of protracted slopes and concave longitudinal profile. Installation of the known system is performed only in the construction of the roadway and, as a consequence, problems on existing sites cannot be resolved.

Closest to the claimed system is a device to strengthen the slope of the subgrade, including placed in the body of the subgrade cross drainage pipe from a material of high strength, with agenoy intake device in the form of a perforated steel pipe, one end of which is provided with a water intake device, and is located in the saturated zone, and a second end removed from the drain bias on the surface of the slope is rigidly connected to the headstall made in the form of an anchor element (Patent RF №2305730, E02D 17/20, 2006)

The known device is intended to ensure slope stability of the subgrade and is not intended for improving bearing capacity of road Foundation. The known device allows the drainage of the Central narrow water-saturated zone in the ballast prism (water lens) of the subgrade. Each drain pipe is implemented as a separate element engaged in the diversion of water due to self-drain. Regulate the outflow of water is not provided. The system inoperable in the cold season.

The technical challenge is to improve the drainage system properties and bearing capacity of the road base by increasing the drainage area, the implementation of regulatory capacity dehumidification, as well as reinforcement of the subgrade.

The invention consists in that the drainage system of the subgrade of the road, including drainage pipes of high strength, installed with drain bias in the sub grade, according to the invention, the drainage pipes are placed inside the body see Lenogo canvas using the method of horizontal directional drilling, the ends of the tubes protrude from the slope of the subgrade and interconnected in a closed system, the output of which is arranged to connect the compressor equipment, and lots of drainage pipes placed in the body of the fabric, holds uniformly perforated.

Using the method of horizontal directional drilling (HDD) for laying drainage pipes inside the subgrade of the road allows the pipes to be laid across the roadway with a given angle in the profile of the road on existing sites, which greatly increases the carrying capacity of the road base by placing a kind of reinforcing lattice of high-strength pipes in the area of distressed stretch of road. Reinforcing lattice slows down the deposition of the problematic part of the road base or stops it.

Lots of drainage pipes located in the body of the fabric, holds uniformly perforated, allowing the vibrations of the road from passing on her transport to enhance the drying process of the soil.

Removing water from the soil subgrade of the road at different times of the year to maintain optimal humidity must be of different intensity. The inventive design allows to solve this problem, because the drainage system is designed with the ability to connect the comp is estomago equipment, which creates negative pressure in the system, initiating the suction of the liquid from the soil.

The interconnected ends of the drainage pipes create a closed system associated with the compressor (pump) equipment that creates the necessary vacuum and regulate the process of drying on the problematic parts of the road depending on the soil type, temperature, saturation of the soil water and the like, providing the necessary water flow.

The system is installed on the problematic stretch of road base, where he found frost heave and/or subsidence of the road base, the reason for this is water "lens" in the body of the road base.

The invention is illustrated as follows.

Figure 1 shows the placement of the drainage tube of the inventive system in the body of roadbed (cross section. Figure 2 is a view As in figure 1 in longitudinal section.

The road system includes perforated drainage pipe 1, which is placed inside the body of subgrade 2 under the road base 3.

The drainage tube 1 is placed in the following way. Using the installation of horizontal directional drilling (HDD) (not shown) using a drill (not shown) is conducted through pilot drilling subgrade 2 with a given slope.

After withdrawal of the drill from the opposite slope of the subgrade Bur demont the shape, to the rod (not shown) attach the drainage tube 1 and on the reverse during installation HDD is produced by laying the specified pipe 1 into the body of subgrade 2 with a given slopeand.

Step drainage pipe 1, the diameter, the configuration of the perforation, type of ground filters and their presence is determined from the model calculation of drainage systems. The results of the calculations are affected by the type of soil, its porosity and the load acting on the stretch of road.

The ends 4 of the pipe 1 protrude from the slope of the subgrade 2. Connect them together using plumbing fixtures - connecting pipes 5 and fittings 6.

Formed a closed system, which by the drain fitting 7 can be connected compressor equipment 8. Drain fitting 7 come from the other side of the road, which is directed slope of the drainage pipe 1.

The drainage system works as follows.

Water from the soil subgrade drains to the drainage pipe 1 and by gravity merge through a drain fitting 7. The water flow increases from the vibration of the ground during movement of vehicles on road base 3.

If necessary, increase the intensity of dehumidification, connects the compressor equipment 8 (compressor) to the drain fitting 7. The compressor 8 creates a vacuum of 0.1-0.9 ATM, depending on the soil type is sidenote ground water, etc., providing the required water flow.

Drainage of the subgrade of the road, including drainage pipes of high strength, installed with drain bias earthen canvas, characterized in that the drainage pipes are placed inside the body of the subgrade using the method of horizontal directional drilling, the ends of the tubes protrude from the slope of the subgrade and interconnected in a closed system, the output of which is arranged to connect the compressor equipment, and lots of drainage pipes placed in the body of the fabric, holds uniformly perforated.

SUBSTANCE: method of performance control of transverse drains on catena lies in determining the timeliness of their lowering of the level of groundwater, and ensuring the required drainage rate. To implement the method the measurement of position of the depression curve in the drain spacing on the established wells is carried out. To do this, between the wells the distance is specified depending on the distance between the drains. The first and the last wells in the drain spacing are located in the trench where the drains are stacked. The second and the penultimate wells are located at one metre from the drains. The remaining wells are located taking into account the asymmetry of the depression curve between the transverse drains. The distance from the upper and lower drains is calculated based on the distance Ev. The distance Ev is defined as the distance from the vertical at the point on the depression curve with its tangent line, parallel to the soil surface, in which there is a minimum drainage rate - the maximum approximation of the groundwater level to the soil surface.

EFFECT: improvement of drainage performance and improvement of effectiveness of use of drained mineral soils of catena.
