This report describes the initial proving tests undertaken on the 'weighwrite' ads in motion weighing system. The test results show that: (a) the system essentially meets the claimed performance specification of 50 kg for dynamic weighing of vehicle axles up to a weight of 12t per axle. (higher loads were not tested.) (b) the readings were repeatable where vehicles could be easily weighed in the length of accurate weighpad surface constructed. (c) where vehicles were longer than the weighpad surface, the results showed a considerable degree of scatter and some were outside the specification. (d) the system is simple to operate and use, but requires some skill on the part of the operator. (e) the weighbeam units are heavy and require care in transportation and installation, but can be installed fairly simply at a prepared site. (f) the units are not an equivalent replacement for a loadometer, as special weighpad surfaces must be constructed to operate them. /Author/
