Falling Weight Deflectometer Testing Services

FWD data collection, data reduction, analysis, and reporting from the pavement engineering specialists.

A falling weight deflectometer (FWD) is a non-destructive testing device used to evaluate physical properties of pavement. It is able to determine the moduli of both asphalt and concrete pavements’ layers and subgrade soils.  The FWD is also used to assess load transfer efficiency and determine the presence of voids under concrete pavement slabs.  The FWD has many other applications, including verification of the constructed pavement condition.

For design-build and P3 projects, Transtec’s FWD testing meets TxDOT Design-Build Standard Specifications Section 16.6 for Uniformity of Support Layers.

The Transtec Group performs FWD data collection, data reduction, analysis, and reporting for highway agencies.
