Effects of adapting the rules on weights and dimensions of heavy commercial vehicles as established within Directive 96/53/EC. Final report.
es to the road transport equipment constraints that were valid in 2000. The scenario takes into account projected economic developments and projected transport demand in Europe until 2020. All otherExpand
Improving truck safety: Potential of weigh-in-motion technology
Trucks exceeding the legal mass limits increase the risk of traffic accidents and damage to the infrastructure. They also result in unfair competition between transport modes and companies. It isExpand
DYNAMIC INTERACTION BETWEEN INSTRUMENTED VEHICLES AND PAVEMENTS
In the scope of the OECD/DIVINE project (Element 5) experiments were carried out in France on several road sections with different profiles. Dynamic responses of two instrumented vehicles travellingExpand
Weltweiter Vergleich von Leistungsmerkmalen schwerer Lastzuege. Ergebnisse der OECD Studie "Moving freight with better trucks" / Worldwide comparison of the performance of heavy vehicles. Results of
Weltweit gibt es unterschiedliche Gesetze ueber Masse und Gewichte (und einzuhaltende Achslasten) von Lkws und die Industrie hat sich mit ihren Produkten darauf eingestellt. Aus den verschiedenenExpand
TEST OF A MULTIPLE SENSOR AND FOUR PORTABLE WIM SYSTEMS
In June 1996, a trial of four portable WIM (weigh-in-motion) systems was performed on a heavily trafficked highway near Trappes. France. This site was equipped with a multiple sensor (MS-WIM) arrayExpand
A mixture peaks over threshold approach for predicting extreme bridge traffic load effects
Traditionally, bridge traffic load effects are considered as idenpendent and identically distributed random variables. However, load effects resulting from different loading events in terms ofExpand
Assessment of the accuracy and classification of weigh-in-motion systems. Part 2: European specification
This is the second part of a two-part paper which addresses the issue of accuracy in weigh-in-motion (WIM) systems. The first part develops the statistical background necessary for any system ofExpand
Assessing the likely effects of potential changes to European heavy vehicle weights and dimensions regulations - project inception report
Currently the maximum length of goods vehicles for use in the European Union, set by EC Directive 96/53/EC, is limited to 16.5 metres for articulated vehicles and 18.75 metres for drawbarExpand
AN EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF SPATIAL REPEATABILITY.
The results of an experimental road research project are presented which demonstrate the existence of spatial repeatability and show patterns of axle impact forces along a pavement. As part of theExpand
