PAVEMENTS DEFLECTION MEASUREMENTS /IN PORTUGUESE/

A NEW METHOD COMBINES THE BENEFITS OF THE BEST DEFINITION OF THE LOADING SYSTEM ALLOWED BY THE PLATES, WITH THE SPEED AND SIMPLICITY OF THE MEASUREMENTS TAKEN WITH THE BENKELMAN BEAM. A STATIC LOAD IS APPLIED TO THE PAVEMENT BY MEANS OF A CIRCULAR PLATE. THE LOAD IS APPLIED ON THE PLATE BY MEANS OF TRUCK WHEELS AND THE DEFLECTIONS ARE DETERMINED BY THE BENKELMAN BEAM. THE DEFLECTION CAN BE ANALYZED BY ANY METHOD THAT TAKES IN CONSIDERATION THE ECCENTRIC DEFLECTIONS (ODEMARK, HUANG, ANDREATINI). THE EXAMPLES HERE PRESENTED WERE ANALYZED BY THE METHODS SUBMITTED BY THE AUTHORS IN "ANALYSIS OF THE DEFLECTIONS IN MULTILAYERS PAVEMENT STRUCTURES". /RRI/
