Dynatest is the pavement industry’s global partner in pavement evaluation solutions. It has developed a range of equipment to measure both structural and functional aspects of the pavement systems. The equipment is designed to provide standardized data of the highest accuracy and repeatability making the output ideal for both project and network-level assessment.

Structural Deflectometer

Pavement engineers worldwide should have the best tools available to understand and model pavements. Dynatest produces a range of structural testing equipment that meets and in many cases exceed international standards. The tools can be used to assess pavements under different loading conditions enabling the engineer to identify the correct mode of failure and the optimum maintenance alternative.

FastFWD – Fast Falling Weight Deflectometer

Fast Falling Weight Defletometer

The Fast Falling Weight Defletometer (Fast FWD) is designed to impart a load pulse to the pavement surface simulating the load produced by a rolling vehicle wheel. It is 5 times faster per drop than the original FWD. Read more

FWD – Falling Weight Deflectometer

Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD)

The FWD applies a dynamic load that simulates the loading of a moving wheel. Read more

Heavy Weight Deflectometer

The HWD is highly versatile and can be used to test on both rigid, paver block, and flexible pavements on roads and airports. Read more

LWD – Light Weight Deflectometer

Light Weight Deflectometer

The LWD is a portable version of the Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD). The LWD uses a load cell and geophones with the same accuracy as the FWD. Read more

TMD – Truck Mounted Deflectometer

Truck Mounted Deflectometer

The TMD provides fully automated, fast, highly accurate and precise measurements suitable for use with standard analysis and design procedures. Read more

PAST – Pavement Strain Transducer

Pavement Strain Transducers

The PAST series transducer is an “H” shaped precision transducer for measurement of strain in AC (Asphalt Concrete) or PCC (Portland Cement Concrete). Read more


Dynatest provides a range of tools for determining the ride and surface quality of the pavements, which can be used for evaluating roads or airports.

MFV – Multi Functional Vehicle

Multi Functional Vehicle

The MFV measures the IRI/RN, longitudinal and transverse profile, macrotexture, raveling and geometrics (crossfall, gradient, and radius of curvature). Read more


RSP III – Road Surface Profiler MK III

Road Surface Profiler MK III

The RSP MK III is designed to provide advanced, automated, high quality pavement longitudinal and transverse profile measurements. Read more


RSP IV – Road Surface Profiler MK IV

Road Surface Profiler MK IV

The portable Road Surface Profiler MK IV can be fitted easily to most vehicles and is capable of real-time, continuous, highway-speed measurements. Read more


Determining and maintaining acceptable pavement friction condition is highly important to airports and roads authorities. Low friction values may lead to fatal accidents that pavement engineers work diligently to avoid. Dynatest manufactures both locked wheel and slip friction units for use on airports and roads at both project and network levels.

RFT – Runway Friction Tester

Runway Friction Tester

The RFT is an accurate and repeatable, self-contained continuous friction measuring equipment (CFME) that provides coefficients of friction (μ) on airport runways. Read more

HFT – Highway Slip Friction Tester

Highway Slip Friction Tester

The Highway Slip Friction Tester (HFT) is an accurate and repeatable, self-contained continuous measuring device that provides self-wetted coefficients of friction on highway pavements. Read more

PFT – Pavement Friction Tester

Pavement Friction Tester

The PFT measures fully locked wheel and peak friction on paved surfaces. It is designed for maintenance testing to evaluate changes or deterioration in pavement friction. Read more

TTT – Tire Traction Tester

Tire Traction Tester (TTT)

The TTT measures the peak friction characteristics on paved surfaces and it is used for tire testing to evaluate the dry or self-wetted friction characteristics of tires. Read more


The Heavy Vehicle Simulator (HVS) is an accelerated, full-scale loading facility that accelerates pavement failure by simulating many years of traffic loading in a few months.

HVS – Heavy Vehicle Simulator

Heavy Vehicle Simulator

The Heavy Vehicle Simulator enables pavement researchers to evaluate new pavement materials, such as warm-mix asphalt or new pavement designs in months or weeks, rather than years. Read more
