A high-speed truck screening system is described in which strain-gauge, load-cell weighing bridges are used to weigh trucks at speeds of 56.3 km/h (35 mph). Initial tests indicate average errors of 2 or 3 percent and no more than 10 percent. The high-speed scales are located approximately 243.8 m (800 ft) upstream from a 3.05 by 3.66-m (10 by 12 ft) platform scale, static weighing station. Details of the installation are outlined. The study showed that weighing in motion on a day-to-day basis is practical. Additional work however is required to improve the reliability of the equipment, and developmental work is recommended to provide more reliable operational weighing transducers.
