This webinar, presented on 31 January 2019, provides an overview of Austroads' study that proposes a ride quality index of roads for heavy vehicles, a heavy vehicle equivalent of the International Roughness Index (IRI) for cars.

It covers:

  • the background of the study
  • a proposed index for objectively measuring the ride quality of freight vehicles
  • the design and conditions of roads influencing subjective perceptions of safety and comfort.
