Automatic Instruments for Weighing Road Vehicles in
Motion - Part 3: Weighing Axle Loads
This Part of GB/T 21296 specifies the terms and definitions, product model, metrological requirements, product structural requirements, product technical requirements, installation and maintenance requirements, test methods, inspection rules, as well as product marking, packaging, transportation and storage of automatic instruments for weighing axle loads of road vehicles in motion (hereinafter referred to as axle load weigher WIM).
This Part applies to automatic weighing instruments that adopt single or multiple load-bearing devices that are installed in the controlled weighing area and flush with the road surface to simultaneously or separately support the entire axle or axle-group being measured, so as to measure the wheel load (if applicable), axle load and axle-group load (if applicable) of road vehicles in motion to further obtain the curb weight. In accordance with different wheel-bearing modes, the automatic weighing instruments can be divided into three types: wheel loads, single- axle and axle-group. The load receptor of the axle load weigher WIMs can be a single load receptor, or multiple load receptors. The axle load weigher WIMs used for other occasions may take this as a reference in the implementation.
This Part does not apply to weighing instruments or measuring systems, in which, the load receptor or measuring device does not have relative movement with the vehicle in the horizontal direction during measurement, such as: static wheel load gauges and load measurement devices embedded in vehicle components, etc.
This Part does not apply to weighing instruments or measuring systems, in which, the load receptor is simply placed on the road surface, and cannot guarantee that all tyres of the vehicle under test and the upper surface of the load receptor are approximately on the same plane during weighing.
This Part does not apply to weighing instruments that merely measure the wheel load on one side, and then, obtain the axle load, axle-group load and curb weight by multiplying. 2 Normative References
