PRIMAX Design - making a difference

PRIMAX Design is the software applied for processing data collected by the PRIMAX FWD. The analyses and calculations made with the system provide road and airport authorities with valuable information about road and airfield pavements allowing decision-makers to make the right decisions with regard to reinforcement needs or maintenance strategies that will ensure safe roads and runways.

See results on site
PRIMAX Design integrated in the PRIMAX survey software allows the operator to analyse deflection and load signals at any measured point on site. Results can be presented for an entire road network, per section and per measuring point with specifications of applied calculation parameters.

Output roads
PRIMAX design provides layer moduli, residual life and reinforcement need for all analysed points as well as per section.

Output airfields
PRIMAX design provides layer moduli, residual life and reinforcement need for all analysed points as well as per section. PCN values (Pavement Classification Number) and ACN value (Aircraft Classification Number).

Back-calculation method
PRIMAX Design uses various back-calculation methods. Calculation of deflection of pavement surfaces are based on the theory of elasticity and the method of equivalent thickness, as framed by J. M. Kirk and N. Odemark on the basis of Boussinesq´s equations or optional by BAKFAA developed by FAA and based on linear elasticity theory.

  Key features:
  • Back- & forward calculation,
     PRIMAX MET or BAKFAA LET
  • Calculation based on 18 sensors
  • Multiple calculation engines
  • Overlay (optimize reinforcement)      
  • Determination of critical layer
  • E moduli for up to 10 layers
  • Estimation of residual life
  • Presentation of design options
