DETERMINATION OF VEHICLE AXLE MASS

This paper discusses the requirements necessary to determine vehicle axle mass for enforcement purposes. Problems associated with traditional 'static' weighing methods are outlined, and newly developed low-speed weighing-in-motion techniques are discussed. A new system developed by ARRB instrumentation group to meet Australian needs is described. This low speed weighing-in-motion system has the advantages of accuracy, ease of operation and relatively low cost. /Author/TRRL/
