QRoad is your partner for Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) testing of roads, airports, dikes, ports and industrial sites. We also have a hand trap weight, or Light Weight Deflectometer. Road bearing capacity studies give pavement consultants the tools they need to make sound pavement recommendations. Ultimately, the result is that maintenance measures do get considered. Ultimately, good paving advice will be cost-saving. Road tests are the indispensable link in this process.
Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD)
Suitable for carrying capacity measurements on roads. This measurement simulates the wheel load of a passing truck.
Heavy Weight Deflectometer (HWD)
Suitable for carrying capacity measurements at airports. This measurement simulates the wheel load of heavy aircraft.
Light Weight Deflectometer (LWD)
A portable version of a falling weight deflection meter suitable for load measurements on sand and foundation materials.
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
A ground radar for measuring layer thicknesses of asphalt and concrete pavements and pavement damages such as loose layers, voids, crushing, moisture and subsidence.
