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 unique FWD system can be installed into many different vehicle configurations. With a total weight of only 550kg the FWD system is ideally suited for light passenger vehicles, pickup trucks or mini vans.
FWD Range Vehicle Mounted Systems offer greater comfort, manoeuvrability and increased safety at highway speeds.
Enhanced Digital Geophones supplied as standard to eliminate electrical interference giving greater accuracy in deflection readings
