The possibilities and merits are discussed of a method for measuring the stiffness of a road construction under vibrating loading. This method forms the dynamic counterpart of the well-known static plate bearing test. The measurements are more reproducible, however, than are those of static plate bearing tests. Compared with other dynamic methods such as wave velocity measurements and measurements under actual traffic conditions, vibrating loading has the advantage of giving clear and straightforward results that allow a simple interpretation. The method can be easily standardized and it can be handled by any skilled engineer. The results have so far been in agreement with road behavior and practical engineering experience.
