MEASUREMENTS OF LONGITUDINAL PROFILE ON THE MUNSTER-OST ROAD FOR TANK TRAFFIC

LAENGSPROFILMESSUNGUNGEN AUF DER PANZERSTRASSE MUNSTER-OST

MEASUREMENTS OF TRANSVERSE PROFILE ARE BEING CARRIED OUT ON THE MUNSTER-OST ROAD FOR CARRYING TANK TRAFFIC IN ORDER TO OBTAIN DATA ON THE WAY IN WHICH THE INDIVIDUAL STRUCTURES CAN BE USED. THE DATA OBTAINED ENABLE A QUALITY GRADING OF THE PAVEMENT TYPES USED ON THE TANK ROAD TO BE MADE. A COMPARISON WITH THE RESULTS OBTAINED FROM OTHER EXPERIMENTAL ROADS IS NOT POSSIBLE. IN ORDER TO OBTAIN COMPARABLE DATA, AS WELL AS THE MEASUREMENTS OF TRANSVERSE PROFILE THE STATE OF THE ROAD IS TO BE EVALUATED BY MEANS OF THE SCHWADERER TRAFFICABILITY INDEX. THIS POSSIBILITY OF COMPARISON IS THEREFORE PARTICULARLY SIGNIFICANT SINCE INDIVIDUAL PAVEMENT TYPES SHOW FIRST APPEARANCES OF WEAR AND FATIGUE AND THUS THE END OF THEIR USEFULNESS CAN BE DETECTED. THE PROJECT SUPPLEMENTS THE RESEARCH PROJECT "CONTINUATION OF THE MEASUREMENTS OF TRAFFIC VOLUME AND TRANSVERSE PROFILE ON THE MUNSTER-OST ROAD FOR TANK TRAFFIC", BMV NO. 6. 17.
