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 used to determine the moduli of existing pavement layers and subgrade for both asphalt and concrete pavements. On concrete pavement, FWD is also used to assess load transfer at joints and presence of voids under the slab. FWD testing can be useful for a variety of applications that range from construction verification of as-built conditions on new projects, to assessment of pavement remaining life due to expected changes in traffic patterns, to determination of pavement rehabilitation needs at project level and network level pavement evaluations.
FWD testing is an essential tool in Pavement Management Systems to identify cost-effective solutions. On design-build and P3 projects, FWD testing is typically conducted on a regular basis to assess pavement structural capacity and rehabilitation needs throughout the maintenance period. The Transtec Group performs FWD data collection, data reduction, analysis, and reporting for highway agencies.
