Dynatest is well recognized partner for pavement evaluation solutions. Dynatest develops, manufactures, and services equipment and software that defines the industry standard. With more than 40 years of experience, Dynatest delivers seamless 360° solutions based on innovative, market-leading expertise and they are proud of their history and achievements.

Understanding the condition of the pavement through accurate and valid test data enables engineers all over the world to understand and plan the maintenance and production of pavement.

Dynatest has developed a range of equipment to measure both structural and functional aspects of the pavement systems. The equipment is designed to provide standardized data of the highest accuracy and repeatability making the output ideal for both project and network-level assessment.


Structural testing equipment

Pavement engineers worldwide should have the best tools available to understand and model pavements. Dynatest produces a range of structural testing equipment that meets and in many cases exceeds international standards. The tools can be used to assess pavements under different loading conditions enabling the engineer to identify the correct mode of failure and the optimum maintenance alternative.

FastFWD - Fast Falling Weight DeflectometerThe FastFWD is designed to impart a load pulse to the pavement surface simulating the load produced by a rolling vehicle wheel. It is 5 times faster per drop than the original FWD.
FWD - Falling Weight DeflectometerThe FWD applies a dynamic load that simulates the loading of a moving wheel.
HWD - Heavy Weight DeflectometerThe HWD is highly versatile and can be used to test on both rigid, paver block, and flexible pavements on roads and airports.
LWD - Light Weight DeflectometerThe LWD is a portable version of the Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD). The LWD uses a load cell and geophones with the same accuracy as the FWD.
TMD - Truck Mounted DeflectometerThe TMD provides fully automated, fast, highly accurate and precise measurements suitable for use with standard analysis and design procedures.
PAST - Pavement Strain TransducersThe PAST series transducer is an “H” shaped precision transducer for measurement of strain in AC (Asphalt Concrete) or PCC (Portland Cement Concrete).


Functional testing equipment

Dynatest provides a range of tools for determining the ride and surface quality of the pavements, which can be used for evaluating roads or airports. 

MMFV - Mobile Multi Functional VehicleThe MMFV is a high-value, low-cost product that comes as an all-in-one solution ready for van-mounting.
MFV - Multi Functional VehicleThe MFV measures the IRI/RN, longitudinal and transverse profile, macrotexture, raveling and geometrics (crossfall, gradient, and radius of curvature).
RSP III - Road Surface Profiler MK IIIThe RSP MK III is designed to provide advanced, automated, high quality pavement longitudinal and transverse profile measurements.
RSP IV - Road Surface Profiler MK IVThe portable RSP MK IV can be fitted easily to most vehicles and is capable of real-time, continuous, highway-speed measurements.


Friction testing equipment

Determining and maintaining acceptable pavement friction condition is highly important to airport and road authorities. Low friction values may lead to fatal accidents that pavement engineers work diligently to avoid. Dynatest manufactures both locked wheel and slip friction units for use on airports and roads at both project and network levels.

RFT - Runway Friction TesterThe RFT is an accurate and repeatable, self-contained continuous friction measuring equipment (CFME) that provides coefficients of friction (μ) on airport runways.
HFT - Highway Slip Friction TesterThe HFT is an accurate and repeatable, self-contained continuous measuring device that provides self-wetted coefficients of friction on highway pavements.
PFT - Pavement Friction TesterThe PFT measures fully locked wheel and peak friction on paved surfaces. It is designed for maintenance testing to evaluate changes or deterioration in pavement friction.
TTT - Tire Traction TesterThe TTT measures the peak friction characteristics on paved surfaces and it is used for tire testing to evaluate the dry or self-wetted friction characteristics of tires.


Simulation equipment

The Heavy Vehicle Simulator (HVS) is an accelerated, full-scale loading facility that accelerates pavement failure by simulating many years of traffic loading in a few months.

HVS - Heavy Vehicle SimulatorThe Heavy Vehicle Simulator enables pavement researchers to evaluate new pavement materials, such as warm-mix asphalt or new pavement designs in months or weeks, rather than years.


Software solutions

Dynatest has designed and developed a suite of software to aid pavement engineering and management. Dynatest Explorer is a comprehensive pavement analysis program that can provide the user with a complete overview of the pavement condition.
