Accelerated pavement testing (APT), although relatively mature technology in South Africa, is increasingly being used around the world to gain a better understanding of pavement behaviour, test designs prior to construction and predict pavement performance. The heavy vehicle simulator (HVS), a research tool designed by the CSIR, is the most widely-used APT equipment internationally. In addition, a number of organisations are considering investment in the HVS technology.
