DEVELOPMENT OF AN INSTRUMENTED VEHICLE FOR NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING OF ROAD PAVEMENTS

ENTWICKLUNG EINER MESSWAGENEINERICHTUNG ZUM ZWECKE DER ZERSTOERUNGSFREIEN PRUEFUNG DER STRASSE

The basic aim in the design of an instrumented vehicle was the creation of facilities for carrying out in-situ tests and measurements. By combining mainly non-destructive test methods and absolutely essential instruments, it was possible to achieve the utmost simplicity and rapidity of operation during measurements. Where a sufficiently large number of test results is available, reliable values of the parameters can be obtained by applying statistical methods. Another important factor is that the operation of the equipment should require the minimum of personnel and that operatives should require only a short period of training. The instruments installed in the vehicle are described in detail and possible variants are discussed. It should be noted that the test vehicle as developed is a prototype with the maximum flexibility. Minor modifications and alterations permit re-equipment and application of the vehicle for other purposes. /TRRL/
