Abstract: The HVS IV+, its history, specifications and capabilities are introduced in this paper, and compared to that of the HVS Mark III. The development of some HVS instrumentation are discussed. Definitions are proposed for a description of the dynamic load capabilities from a loading and a pavement response viewpoint. Initial results from the pilot study using the Moving Dynamic Load option are shown. Interesting data regarding the HVS and tyre behaviour during a long-term test are also provided.
