Benkelman Beam Testing

Alliance Geotechnical is NATA accredited to perform the benkelman beam test and have pavement engineering staff to provide the data interpretation.

Benkelman beam testing is a cost-effective means of testing conformance on new construction or testing short lengths of existing roads to determine areas requiring rehabilitation treatment. Testing is generally performed in 10m intervals measuring the rebound deflection of a flexible pavement or road formation using a portable deflection beam under both a standard wheel load and tyre pressure.
