Product Details

Standards: ASTM D4694

Model: FWD-SN

The Falling Weight Deflectometer is a specialized equipment for pavement testing, there are single point and multi point two types of with Vehicular and Trailer model.

Working Principle

The hydraulic system lift the rammer to specific height, then drop, the rammer do free falling movement, impact the bearing platen on the pavement, thus make the pavement produce some deformation, then the DAQ set will acquire the deformation and the impact force, also will acquire the air temperature, pavement temperature, asphalt temperature, GPS data.
