Heavy Vehicle Simulator: The rise of the Titan
“The Titan” is quite literally our greatest project to date. It will be the largest Heavy Vehicle Simulator that we have ever manufactured.
The 120 ton-machine will be used for accelerated pavement testing at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) military base in Vicksburg, Mississippi. The HVS is designed to apply up to 12,000 passes in a 24-hour-period while simulating loads up to 120,000 pounds for wheeled vehicles including military aircraft.
The Titan makes it possible to safely and quickly simulate evaluate the effects of traffic on a particular pavement being tested.
The massive machine will be:
- 150 feet long
- 15 feet wide
- 14 feet tall
