(ii) Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), New Delhi (S)

 

Present Status and progress
In continuation to the progress reported earlier, the system for measurement of deflection basin under truck dual tire assembly has been tested in the laboratory and the results obtained are encouraging.

The design of the frame for lifting/lowering the measuring arm was modified after field trials with a loaded truck. Further field trials with the system are in progress.
