Abstract : U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Waterways Experiment Station conducted tests of weighing multiaxle vehicles using the PT SAW lOc portable static scales in both a loaded and half loaded condition on level and smooth surfaces. The tests were designed to determine the accuracy of the PAT scales. The equipment used during the test included four vehicles, two PAT SAW lOc scales, and wood leveling boards. The use of the Mississippi scales was necessary to determine the accuracy of the PAT scales. Each vehicle's axle was weighed 30 times. One special test was included to verify the axle height effect when the vehicles was weighed. The data was analyzed with frequency histograms, normal probability plots, and test of hypothesis.
