Collop, AC and Potter, TEC and Cebon, D and Cole, DJ (1994) Investigation of spatial repeatability using a tire force measuring mat. Transportation Research Record. pp. 1-7. ISSN 0361-1981Full text not available from this repository.
A portable mat for measuring the dynamic tire forces of commercial vehicles is described. The mat is 56 m long and 13 mm thick and has 141 capacitative strip sensors spaced at 0.4-m intervals. The accuracy of the mat for measuring dynamic tire forces generated by heavy commercial vehicles is assessed using an instrumented vehicle. The spatial repeatability of dynamic wheel loads generated by 14 uninstrumented articulated vehicles is investigated, and it is concluded that approximately half of the vehicles tested are likely to contribute to a repeatable pattern of road loading.
