Each time a vehicle passes over a pavement the surface is deflected and rebounds, creating temporary strain conditions for 0.01 to 0.1 sec. Information about these strain conditions can be obtained by observing the movements of the pavement under similar dynamic loading conditions. Methods used for the dynamic investigation of pavements, base courses, and subgrades are described in the present paper.
