Abstract: The aim of this paper is to highlight the use of SIM (Stress-In-Motion) technology on typical heavy vehicles found at the N3-TCC (Traffic Control Centre), with illustrative examples on real world trucks on this highway. A summary of the findings on tyre inflation pressure on this route is also given. The paper also discusses an improved definition of the actual tyre/pavement interaction of modern heavy vehicles and their loads on the current flexible road infrastructure.
