Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD)

Deflectometers are at the cutting edge of pavement evaluation technology, allowing us to get fast and accurate results that detail a pavement’s true quality and structural capacity without relying on visual assessments or destructive techniques.

QES owns and operates two Dynatest 8000 Falling Weight Deflectometers and has the state-of-the-art computing facilities, software, and trained personnel required to process deflectometer data. Our deflectometers can be used in applications ranging from unpaved roads to airfields and simulate loads of up to 23,500 pounds, delivering quality results in almost any situation.
