THE USE OF NON-DESTRUCTIVE MEASUREMENTS TO EVALUATE PAVEMENT PERFORMANCE: THE MALAYSIAN EXPERIENCE. PROCEEDINGS, SIXTH CONFERENCE, ROAD ENGINEERING ASSOCIATION OF ASIA AND AUSTRALASIA, 4-10 MARCH 1990, KUALA LUMPUR, VOLUMES 1 TO 5 AND POST CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS

The Public Works Department (PWD) Malaysia has had extensive experience of using the Benkelman Beam for evaluating road pavements in the past. More recently the Road Rater and the Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) have been used. The deflection data from these devices have been interpreted using different methods of analysis. In order to identify the most appropriate system for future use, the PWD embarked on a study to compare the performance of the Road Rater and the FWD and the available methods of analysis. This paper describes the study and concludes that the FWD combined with the system PEACH was the most successful forward analysis program whilst PHONIX was the best backward analysis program. For the covering entry of the conference see IRRD 823206. (Author/TRRL)
