MULTIPLE-WHEEL HEAVY GEAR LOAD PAVEMENT TESTS. VOLUME III. PART A. PRESENTATION AND INITIAL ANALYSIS OF STRESS-STRAIN DEFLECTION AND VIBRATORY MEASUREMENTS - INSTRUMENTATION

Flexible and rigid pavement test sections were constructed and tested to gain information on pavement and soil behavior under large aircraft loadings. These test sections incorporated instrumentation systems designed to determine the response of the pavement structures to static, dynamic (slowly moving), and vibratory loads and to traffic by full prototype loadings. The components of the instrumentation systems, their installation, and the test programs are described in this volume. (Author)
