New Blog: High Oil prices forces more Pavement Management Planning

These times are difficult for those responsible for our pavement and roads. The large price increase of oil does not only affect the cost of driving vehicles, but it also has a large impact on the price of asphalt, since asphalt is a byproduct of oil.

New blog: Do you evaluate the Boeing Bump Index (BBI)

The Boeing Bump Index (BBI) is a parameter introduced by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the 2009 for the airport pavement roughness evaluation, specifically for runways.
But why should you care about the roughness of the runway when passengers are only there for a few minutes in comparison to the time passengers spend in their vehicles on roads?

Why do you need to measure both PCN and PCI at your airport?

Airport pavement plays a vital role in the safety of passengers and aircrafts during ground maneuvers such as taxi, take off, and landing. The ground must provide the required support and necessary friction while staying in proper condition as to not generate any foreign object debris (FOD) that could be potentially dangerous for the airplane and passengers. Even a minor inconvenience can lead to significant operational issues for both the flight and the airport, resulting in substantial financial losses or safety risks. Therefore, it is crucial to maintain the pavement in optimal condition and regularly monitor all pavement characteristics, including bearing capacity, friction, roughness, visual assessment, and more.

Is the deflectometer becoming obsolete?

Dynatest developed the first Falling Weight Deflectometer in 1980, more than 40 years ago, and the falling weight method has remained the same during this time. Does this mean that the measurement method is becoming extinct? On the contrary, there has never been a greater need for this non-destructive method than now.
