The Relative Damaging Effects of Quad Axles and Triaxles

This publication describes how the Main Roads Department Queensland (MRD Qld) commissioned ARRB Research (ARRB) to conduct a heavy vehicle field trial in order to provide data on the pavement damaging effects of quad axle groups at different loads. At the time, ARRB was undertaking a major research project for Austroads entitled “Influence of Vertical Loading on the Performance of Unbound and Cemented Materials”. The project had included a desktop study to evaluate the equivalent load on a quad axle group based on theoretical analysis. The project recommended the conduct of field trials to provide hard to for evaluating the theoretical analysis. The field trial described in the publication was therefore closely related to the Autroads research.
