Abstract: A common method of collecting traffic loading data across a large road network is to use a network of permanent pavement-based WIM systems. An alternative is to use one or more portable Bridge Weigh-In-Motion systems which are moved periodically between bridges on the network. To make optimum use of such a system, a suitable data collection strategy is needed to choose locations for the system. This paper describes a number of possible strategies which the authors have investigated for the National Roads Authority in Ireland. The different strategies are examined and their advantages and disadvantages compared. Their effectiveness at detecting a heavy loading event is also investigated and the preferred approach is identified.
Une méthode usuelle pour recueillir des données de trafic sur un réseau routier étendu est d’utiliser un réseau de stations de pesage intégrées dans la chaussée. Une alternative est d’utiliser le système de pesage par pont instrumenté qui est portable en étant transporté à intervalles réguliers d’un pont à l’autre. Pour optimiser l’utilisation d’un tel système, une stratégie d’utilisation de ce système doit être établie. Ce papier un certain nombre de stratégies que les auteurs ont étudiées en s’intéressant au réseau routier Irlandais. Pour chaque d’entre elles, leurs avantages et leurs inconvénients sont présentés. Leur efficacité à détecter des surcharges est également étudiée et la meilleure démarche est identifiée.
