THE CEBTP CURVATURE METER

LE CURVIAMETRE CEBTP

THE CEBTP CURVATURE METER WAS DESIGNED FOR HIGH-OUTPUT NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING. IT MEASURES THE DEFLECTION AND RADIUS OF CURVATURE OF A PAVEMENT SUBJECTED TO THE LOAD OF A SINGLE TWIN AXLE TRAVELLING AT 18 KM/H. IN THE MODEL THE AXLE LOAD IS 13 TONNES BUT IT CAN BE ALTERED TO ANY VALUE BY MODIFYING THE QUANTITY OF BALLAST ON THE VEHICLE. THE PRINCIPLE OF THE CURVATURE METER IS DESCRIBED TOGETHER WITH THE APPARATUS, RANGE OF MEASUREMENTS, REPRODUCIBILITY OF RESULTS, AND THE CORRELATION BETWEEN MEASUREMENTS WITH THE CURVATURE METER AND THE BENKELMAN BEAM. EXAMPLES OF THE USE OF THE MEASUREMENTS ARE GIVEN.
