Abstract

A new method for assessing condition of forest road surface layers by vibration measurements is analysed in the paper. The research was conducted on a forest road segment while driving a vehicle equipped with a measuring device for determining vibrations in all three axes, vehicle position, vehicle speed, and time. Tests were performed in both driving directions of the forest road segment using different measuring frequencies, tyre inflation pressures, and driving speeds. The recording frequency of 10 Hz, vehicle speed of 20 km/h, and tyre inflation pressure of 2 bars, can be recommended based on the forest road surface measurement results.

Keywords
forest road surface, forest road damage, vibration measurements, recording frequency
