Validation of an Inertial Profilometer for Measuring Pavement Roughness (Reference Device Method)
  • Publication no: AGAM-T002-16
  • Published: 13 May 2016

This test method defines the procedure for performing validation checks of the measurements of pavement roughness determined using an inertial profilometer, by comparing them to the measurements from a static or manual reference device.

This test method is one of two alternative validation methods required by Austroads Test Method AG:AM/T001. The other validation method is Austroads Test Method AG:AM/T003.
