Abstract
CONTINUOUS MONITORING OF TRUCK LOAS ARE TEHREATED BY STATE- OF -THE-ART MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUES. MONITORING MAY BE EITHERREMOTE OR RECORDED FOR LOCAL INSPECTION. IT IS PROPOSED TO INSTALL STRAIN GAGE LOAD CELLS AT THE SALIENT LOCATIONS OF THE LOAD SUPPORT STRUCTURE OF TRUCKS AND PROVIDE APPRO PRIATE SIGNAL CONDITIONING IN A SECURE MODE TO RECORD OR TRANSMIT THE VEHICLE LOAD STATUS. THE RECORDING OR RECEPTIONCAN BE IMSPECTED AT A LOCALIZED INSPECTION STATION. CONSIDERATION IS GIVEN TO PROBLEMS RELATED TO ACCURATE SUMMATION OF THE FORCES APPLIED UNDER VIBRATORY AND ROUGH ROAD CONDIT IONS INCLUDING PROGLEMS OF SIDE SWAY AND BOUNCE. THE DISTRIBUTION OF LOAD MAY ALSO BE CHARACTERIZED BY THE METHODS OF MEASUREMENT THAT ARE PLANNED. STUDY IS ALSO TO BE MADE TO OPTIMIZING THE SYSTEM FOR COST EFFECTIVENESS.
