An alternative to this approach would be to use one or more portable Bridge Weigh-In-Motion systems which could be moved between bridges at regular intervals to determine the traffic loading throughout the network. A data collection strategy is needed to put such a system to best use. This paper details the data collection strategies which were examined for the National Roads Authority in Ireland. The use of urban economic concepts including Central Place Theory are discussed as methods for analysing which roads are expected to experience the greatest truck loading.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Keywords:||Bridge;Weigh-In-Motion;WIM;B-WIM;Data Collection Strategy;Secondary Roads;Traffic;Loading;Economics;Central Place Theory||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||Presented at the Bridge and Concrete Research in Ireland Conference, 2012 Dublin|
