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 of accuracy classification applied to a WIM system. This second part describes a draft European specification for the weigh-in-motion (WIM) of road vehicles, prepared by the COST 323 management committee. The philosophy behind the specification is outlined and the basic structure detailed. The… Expand

On the use of bridge weigh–in–motion for overweight truck enforcement
Bridge weigh-in-motion (B-WIM) is a method by which the axle weights of a vehicle travelling at full highway speed can be determined using a bridge instrumented with sensors. This paper looks at theExpand
Determination of strain correction factors for bridge weigh-in-motion systems
The paper presents an automatic procedure for the correction of bridge weigh-in-motion (B-WIM) measurements, which are used to determine the axle loads of heavy vehicles using instrumented bridges.Expand
Influence of number and quality of weigh-in-motion data on evaluation of load effects on bridges : doctoral thesis
The thesis is dealing with the influence of number and quality of weigh-in-motion (WIM) data to calculate load effects on bridges. Weighing in motion is the only method that provides continuous andExpand

TLDR
The shapes of tyre footprint form, pressure and weight distribution along the footprint length are being estimated and discussed in order to extract and compensate the longitudinal and transverse oscillations of tractor's, trailer's, each axle's and wheel's “gravity centre” with the aim to decrease the estimation errors.

Assessment of Factors Affecting Measurement Accuracy for High-Quality Weigh-in-Motion Sites in the Long-Term Pavement Performance Database
TLDR
The WIM data for Long-Term Pavement Performance research-quality sites showed that for the sensor arrays utilized, the best achievable total errors based on GVW are ±5% for load cell (LC), ±9% for bending plate (BP), and ±9.8% for the quartz piezo (QP) sensors. Expand
Comparison of two independently developed bridge weigh–in–motion systems
An experiment is described in which two independently developed bridge weigh–in–motion (WIM) systems are tested and compared, both for accuracy and durability. The systems, an Irish prototype stillExpand
Standardization of Weigh-in-Motion in Europe
In this paper, the authors review recent developments in Europe's weigh-in-motion (WIM) systems, highlighting the Forum of European Highway Research Laboratory's FiWi project initiative. FiWi projectExpand
Bridge weigh-in-motion using fibre optic sensors
Bridge weigh-in-motion systems were introduced in the 1970s as a structural health monitoring tool for road bridges. They help bridge operators determine the cause of induced strain in bridges andExpand
