2007 - Roughness Calibration Workbook


2007 - Roughness Calibration Workbook This is an Excel workbook for calibrating response-type roughness meters. It is based on the approach from the World Bank guidelines, as well as experience in developing and calibrating ROMDAS roughness meters. The work book takes the raw roughness data from each run on a test site, and tests the standard error to ensure that the results of individual runs are consistent enough for the data to be used for calibration. If not, it indicates 'Fail' so you should do additional runs. For further information on calibrating roughness meters check out the ROMDAS user guide annex, available for download from www.romdas.com.
