September 7, 2016

The Light Falling Weight Deflectometer (LFWD) is an fast and effective way to measure a composite in-situ modulus value of near-surface material. The modulus parameter returned by this quick field test is a function of the measured peak applied loads and associated peak deflection which are all recorded and analysed on site via wireless tablet. As the LFWD measures composite modulus it is able to assess the effects of geotextiles and the results are not adversely affected by larger sized particles in the matrix making the LFWD an idea way to assess engineered construction platforms on site.
