RESEARCH REPORT ON ELECTRONIC HIGHWAY SCALES FOR WEIGHING TRUCKS IN MOTION

THE CONSTRUCTION, INSTALLATION, TESTING AND PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS IS BEING DESCRIBED OF THREE TYPES OF DYNAMIC ELECTRONIC HIGHWAY SCALES' THE TALLER-COOPER SCALE WHICH IS A FOUR-LOAD CELL SCALE, THE BROKEN BRIDGE SCALE WHICH IS AN ADAPTATION OF A GERMAN PROTOTYPE EMPLOYING TWO LOAD CELLS, AND THE BEAM TYPE SCALE WHICH HAS A PAIR OF INSTRUMENTED ALUMINUM BEAMS AS THE WEIGHT SENSORS. FIELD TESTS WERE CONDUCTED ON THESE SCALES WITH TRUCKS OF KNOWN AXLE WEIGHTS, WITH THE SPEED AND THE AMOUNT AND METHOD OF VERTICAL STABILIZATION /PRELOAD/ BEING VARIED. THE TEST RESULTS WERE COMPARED FOR THE DIFFERENT SCALES.
