A four way split specially designed loading plate is placed on the surface of the pavement and a load pulse is applied to the plate. The load pulse is generated by the impact of a falling weight. The load pulse is designed to cause a deflection that closely simulates the deflection caused by a wheel load passing at normal speed.
The software is simple and intuitive to use, operating on a standard Microsoft Windows XP platform. It displays results immediately after each test and creates standard excel documents of each test or series of tests for further data analysis. It also supports multiple languages.
Enhanced Digital Geophones supplied as standard to eliminate electrical interference giving greater accuracy in deflection readings.
