CC7 South Instrumentation Plan

Several sensor types were installed in the CC-7 test items to meet the testing objectives.  In all, over 150 gages were installed consisting of various sensor types including: moisture sensors, specific heat sensors, pressure cells, asphalt strain gages, fiber optic strain gages, thermocouples, multi-depth deflectometers, fiber optic strain plates, and air temperature/relative humidity sensors.  A summary of the installed CC-7 instrumentation is shown below: 

Dynamic Sensors

12 Multi-depth deflectometers (MDD)

12 Pressure cells

42 Asphalt strain gages

4 Fiber optic strain plates

4 Fiber optic strain gages
