CC7 South Traffic Test Results
Full-scale traffic testing began on 10/06/2014 using the NAPTV with multiple gear configurations (D, 2D, and 3D) at 2.5 mph. Overload test items LFC3-S and LFC6-S were the first test items to be declared as failed. Failure was based on the upheaval values, not the surface distresses. By the completion of trafficking of LFC5-S nearly 100% of the wander area was fatigued. The same followed suit for LFC4-S and LFC2-S. Finally, LFC1-S followed the same pattern but only reached a fatigue area level of approximately 50% before testing was completed. The traffic test concluded on 10/13/2016.
