The systems, an Irish prototype still under development and a commercially available American system, were tested on a bridge in Slovenia. 11 statically pre-weighted trucks were each driven over the bridge several times at a range of typical highway speeds. Accuracies for axle and gross vehicle weights are presented within the framework of the draft European WIM specification, and the bias which can be introduced by the selection of a calibration truck is demonstrated. Performance factors relating to durability are also discussed with particular emphasis on axle detectors||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Inderscience Enterprises||Copyright (published version):||1999, Inderscience Enterprises Limited||Keywords:||Weigh-in-motion; WIM; Bridge; Gross vehicle weight; Axle weight; Accuracy; Test||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
