CALIBRATION OF RESPONSE-TYPE ROAD ROUGHNESS MEASURING SYSTEMS This report contains the results of an intensive study of response-type road roughness measuring systems (primarily Mays- and PCA-type road meters) for the purpose of developing calibration and correlation by: Abstract.

Response-type road roughness measuring systems are widely used for collecting roughness data of pavement in many countries. These systems estimate IRI from correlation equations of IRI with other variables and help collect roughness.

The experiment involved measurement of 49 test sites, covering a wide range of roughness over paved and unpaved roads, Each site was measured at several speeds by seven I response-type road roughness measuring systems. Road roughness measurement using a cost-effective sensor-based monitoring system Article (PDF Available) in Automation in Construction April with Reads How we measure.

This synthesis will be of interest to construction engineers, pavement designers, contractors, and others interested in construction of new highway pavements with smooth surfaces.

Information. The schedule above means that we are able to measure any roughness standard, whose total peak to valley roughness height is in the range 10 nm up to 25 µm, for any of the seven R-parameters quoted, and issue a traceable calibration certificate with statement of uncertainty for that roughness standard.

This paper defines roughness measurement systems hierachically into four groups, ranging from profilometric methods (2 groups) - being accurate and most amenable to detailed analysis - through response-type road roughness measuring systems File Size: 4MB. Guidelines for conducting and calibrating road roughness measurements (English) Abstract.

Road roughness is gaining increasing importance as an indicator of road condition, both in terms of pavement performance, and as a major determinant of road user costs. This paper defines roughness measurement systems hierachically Cited by: The measurement devices can be divided in to four general types: response-type road roughness measuring systems (RTRRMS), direct profile measurements, indirect profile measurements Cited by: The response-type system includes the driven vehicle, the driver and contents of the vehicle, the towed trailer (if one is used with the system), and a device called a road meter that measures the vehicle response to pavement roughness.

The road meter may be mounted in an automobile, van, or in a towed trailer. Response-type (road meter. The response-type system includes the driven vehicle, the driver and contents of the vehicle, the towed trailer (if one is used with the system), and a device called a road meter that measures the vehicle response to pavement roughness.

Response Type Road Roughness Meters (RTRRMs) The third category of roughness data collection equipment is the response type road roughness meters (RTRRMs), often called “road meters”.

RTRRM systems. Surface Roughness Measurements Are Your Business, Calibration Is Ours We understand that you want to focus your time and energy on the surface roughness testing your business and customers demand.

When you enroll in our calibration management program, you don’t have to worry about remembering when your equipment is due for calibration.

Since the s a lot of studies had been done for measuring paved road profiles [], and many kinds of measuring systems had been invented [3–6].Nowadays, the most commonly used non-contact profilometers can measure the road spectra with pretty high accuracy [7–9].Nonetheless, this delicate system may not yield useful result for the unpaved road Cited by: 3.E - 92() Standard Practice for Calibration of Systems Used for Measuring Vehicular Response to Pavement Roughness, Calibration-pavement testing instrumentation, Response-type system, Road roughness index, Roughness, Vehicles (automotive), calibration of systems used for measuring vehicular response to pavement, roughness.The International Roughness Index is the roughness index most commonly obtained from measured longitudinal road profiles.

It is calculated using a quarter-car vehicle math model, whose response is accumulated to yield a roughness index with units of slope. This performance measure .
