FLEMING, P.R. and EDWARDS, J.P., 2013. LWD best practice guide, Loughborough: Loughborough University.
This Best Practice Guide has emerged from a working group (Pavement Foundations Group) to address the need for consistency in the implementation of LWD’s into UK practice. However, the guide does reflect best practice for a range of applications. It describes the industry best practice for using Lightweight Deflectometers to verify the construction quality of road foundations. The guide is seen as a statement of current knowledge, and includes recommendations for site operations. It is expected that this guidance will be updated periodically.
This is an unpublished report that arose from a working group coordinated by the UK Highways Agency (now Highways England). The guide is/was under the ownership of Highways Agency, with support from Transport Scotland, County Surveyors Society, Britpave, Minerals Products Association and other interested parties who have contributed.
