A report titled ‘Falling Weight Deflectometer Calibration Center and Operational Improvements: Redevelopment of The Calibration Protocol and Equipment’ has been published by the FHWA. This report is the result of a pooled fund study that has resulted in revisions to AASHTO’s R32-09 calibration procedure for the FWT. There is also new calibration software, WinFWDCal that came out of this research. [Source: FHWA. Image: Dynatest]
