Acquiring road profiles using Walking-Profiler and computer modelling planograph’s measurement
Languages of publication
The assessment of road pavements in terms of their properties and surface features is both complex and difficult. The indicators which describe the surface quality are eg. a longitudinal and transverse profile, a coefficient of friction, the International Roughness Index (IRI) and surface cracks. The article presents a method of using the data describing a real longitudinal profile of pavements, which was obtained by way of a self-constructed device named Walking-Profiler. It also proposes a way of calculating it with the use of numerical modelling of a Planograph, and also (simultaneously) the collected data can be used to calculate the International Roughness Index.
