Development and assessment of a road roughness trailer

A small trailer has been constructed by ARRB for the measurement of road roughness utilising the NAASRA roughness meter. The trailer roughness count has been compared with the NAASRA roughness count for a range of roughnesses, road geometry, trailer, axle load and draw bar load and type of vehicle. The agreement is encouraging. It is anticipated that the trailer will be preferable to the present ARRB vehicle as a 'standard' roughness vehicle and will also facilitate periodic calibration of SRA vehicles.
