scope:

1.1 This test method covers the determination of deflections of paved and unpaved surfaces with a Light Weight Deflectometer (LWD). This device is also referred to as a Portable Falling-Weight Deflectometer (PFWD). The LWD is lightweight, portable and generally used for testing unbound pavement layers. The deflections measured using an LWD can be used to determine the stiffness of bound and unbound pavement surfaces using appropriate back- or forwardcalculation analysis techniques.

1.2 &si-value;

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
