Meet team 'Nortex'
Riding Quality matters
Even though on all those projects where we replaced the eroded base and stabilized the panels, if the panels wouldn’t lift and the ride quality didn’t greatly improve the agency would wonder what they actually paid for. About a year and a half ago we incorporated a new process of PolyGrinding and it has really taken off. The cost of this process is about 1/4 of full depth repair cost (panel replacement) and about ½ the cost of another process called Dowel Bar Retrofit. PolyGrinding significantly improves ride quality of the faulted concrete pavement.
RoadBounce as a data acquisition tool
I would intend to use your app to show what the roadways ride quality is before our process is done, and then another test after we have PolyGrinded the roadway. I think the IRI testing feature will help me show a poor ride number before and a good ride number after. believe I could also use it to provide a better roadway canvas to bring attention to problem areas that a particular city or DOT may not be aware of with the intent that our process would be the solution.
