Standard Test Method for Using a Rolling Inclinometer to Measure Longitudinal and Transverse Profiles of a Traveled Surface
|Publication Date:||10 February 2003|
|ICS Code (Road construction materials):||93.080.20|
This test method describes the measurement of transverse and longitudinal surface profiles on paved road, bridge, and airport surfaces using a rolling inclinometer traveling at walking speed.
It is designed to (1) quantify the roughness of new pavements and bridge decks; (2) Investigate the effect of various construction methods on surface roughness; (3) determine the location for corrective grinding; and (4) evaluate the effect of corrective grinding.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
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.
