    The International Roughness Index (IRI) is used to measure the roughness of roads and is used as a sole measurement to categorize overall physical condition. The average IRI value is calculated over every 50 metre segment of the Alberta highway network.   This project aims to evaluate the effects of changes in the correlation length of the rigidity of the subgrade flexible pavement roughness expressed in terms of the International Roughness Index (IRI). The correlation length, which defines the structure of the dispersion of soil rigidity, has a direct effect on the wavelength of the induced deformations, and thus the Cited by: 2.

Washington, D.C., U.S.A. The calibration method is demonstrated using the results of two recent calibrations. Roughness data taken during the calibrations are used to determine measurement errors which are also examined and discussed.

Calibration is a comparison of any measuring instrument with a known standard; the quintessential example is the use of gage blocks to calibrate measurements of length.

Surface roughness is a dynamic measurement, not a static one, and the condition of the individual elements that collectively capture the data can contribute to the result. Road Roughness Experiment (IRRE) to establish comelation and a calibration standard for roughness measurements (ó).

Figure 1: IRI Roughness Scale (replotted from Sayers et al., [3]) Roughness measurements can be made in a variety of ways including surveying instruments, portable inclinometers, profilographs, response type road roughness meters (RTRRMs) and profiling devices.

The most common methods involve profilographs and profiling devices. The measurement devices can be divided in to four general types: response-type road roughness measuring systems (RTRRMS), direct profile measurements, indirect profile measurements, and subjective rating panels (Sayers et al., a, Sayers et al., b).

Most highway agencies collect IRI data using a laser sensor or high speed by: J. Lucas and A. Viano, Systematic Measurement of Evenness on the Road Network: High Output Longitudinal Profile Analyser.

Analysis of Surface Roughness Surface texture is the repetitive or random deviation from the nominal surface that forms the three-dimensional topography of the surface.

Surface texture includes (1) roughness (nano- and microrough. mid s to enable correlation of different road roughness devices (ref 2). The IRI has since become the world standard as the roughness measurement statistic of choice.

The measurement of IRI is required for data provided to the United States Federal Highway Administration, and is covered in several standards from ASTM International: ASTM E - 08, [6] ASTM E.

Services we offer. The schedule above means that we are able to measure any roughness standard, whose total peak to valley roughness height is in the range 10 nm up to 25 µm, for any of the seven R-parameters quoted, and issue a traceable calibration certificate with statement of uncertainty for that roughness standard.

Sayers. Road roughness is a broad term that incorporates everything from potholes and cracks to the random deviations that exist in a profile. To build a roughness index, road irregularities need to be measured first. Existing methods of gauging the roughness are based either on visual inspections or using one of a limited number of instrumented vehicles that can take physical measurements of the road Cited by: 1.I’ll assume that you’re asking about paved roads.
