Cyclic load triaxial test

This test makes it possible to simulate in the laboratory the effect of road traffic on unbound granular materials used in base and subbase layers of roads, in order to allow:

Skid resistance measurements with the SRT – Information leaflet A57

BRRC has a static device for measuring skid resistance in places where conventional skid resistance measurements with measuring vehicles are impossible, such as footways, driveways, industrial floors, road markings, shopping streets, entrance halls, etc. It is the Skid Resistance Tester of the British Transport Research Laboratory (TRL), shortly referred to as SRT by professionals.
BRRC’s information leaflet A57 decribes the device and its applications.

CPX trailer

The CPX trailer measures the acoustic quality and homogeneity of road surfacings.

Portable Friction Tester

The Portable Friction Tester allows continuous measurements of the skid resistance of road markings and road surfaces over a given distance, in situations where the British pendulum tester (portable skid resistance tester) cannot be used.

Dynaplaque

The Dynaplaque allows rapid checks of the bearing capacity of soils or subgrades with a maximum particle density Dmax smaller than 200 mm.
