Benkelman beam deflection measurements Published: June | Category This test procedure covers the determination of the rebound deflection of a pavement under a standard wheel load and tyre pressure, with or without temperature measurements. Pavement and Performance; Benkelman Beam; Benkelman Beam. This is used to measure the deflection of a flexible pavement under moving wheel loads. In use, the probe is placed between the tires of a test vehicle, and deflection is measured as the vehicle passes over the test area to beyond the end of the probe beam. The reference beam is equipped.

The Benkelman beam was developed at the WASHO Road Test for the purpose of measur­ ing the deflection of a flexible pavement under a loaded pneumatic tire. The beam fulfilled a need for a simple instrument that could quickly and conveniently measure the pavement sur­ face deflection at File Size: 1MB.

    Figure 1: Diagram of Benkelman Beam Figure 2: Conceptual Working of Benkelman Beam Taking the Dial Gauge Reading The procedure of measuring the rebound deflection is as follows • Select 10 points along the outer wheel path (i.e., 60 cm from the pavement edge) for each lane. Accurate information about pavement strength is a critically important input for use in RMMS. Different types of tests such as the Benkelman Beam Test, Falling Weight Deflectometer and Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) test and the CBR test all provide useful information on pavement strength. It is obviously essential to select the right type of File Size: KB.

Seasonal variation of pavement strength based on Benkelman beam rebounds by Martin Samson Download PDF EPUB FB2

Seasonal variation of pavement strength based on benkelman beam rebounds This C-SHRP data insight project was carried out in an effort to better understand and characterize the seasonal behaviour of roads located in areas subjected to seasonal by: 1. Static Deflection Equipment.

Static deflection equipment measure pavement deflection in response to a static load. Benkelman Beam. The Benkelman Beam (Figure 2), developed at the Western Association of State Highway Organizations (WASHO) Road Test inis.

Pavement deflection is measured by the Benkelman beam which consists of a slender beam m long pivoted at a distance of m from the tip (see fig.1).

By suitably placing the probe between the dual wheels of a loaded truck, it is possible to measure the rebound and residual deflections of the pavement structure. The Benkelman beam measures the deflection of a flexible pavement under moving wheel loads.

Extremely accurate and easy to use. Direct-reading dial indicator eliminates need for conversion tables or field calculations. This pavement analysis tool provides the following features: • Precision accuracy • Easy to use on test site.

The entire length of m of Runway for Surat Airport is grouped in five sections as per pavement condition, and each section of Runway have been classified relatively as Good, Fair and Poor based on visual observation and performance study, and Benkelman Beam Deflection measurements.

This paper discusses a method of flexible pavement design based on Benkelman Beam Rebound (BBR) measurements. The procedure is applicable to the design of an overlay for an existing pavement, while in the design of a new pavement an existing pavement is used as a prototype for evaluation of strength and establishment of the thicknesses for the Author: E B Wilkins, G D Campbell.

based on this rating. The overall pavement condition is also determined. The characteristic deflection of the pavement is determined by using Benkelman Beam Deflection testing technique and overlay thickness required for the pavement to withstand present as well as future traffic loading is calculated as per IRC: 81 – guidelines.

Benkelman Beam Test OBJECTIVE: To determine the rebound deflection of a pavement under a standard wheel load and tyre pressure with or without temperature measurement by Benkelman Beam test. INTRODUCTION A.C. Benkelman devised the simple deflection beam in for measurement of pavement surface deflection on the WASHTO Test Road.

It is widely used all over. The data acquisition calibration factor of a Benkelman Beam is determined by applying known deflections to the beam tip and comparing each calibration jig dial gauge reading to the deflection calculated by the deflection test computer program BWL4.

More specifically, the objectives were to 1. Measure changes in subgrade resilient modulus with changes in season and 2. Develop an algorithm to predict seasonal change in.
