HVS stands for Heavy Vehicle Simulator. It’s a large piece of equipment that allows for repeated passage of a truck or aircraft wheel over a pavement, simulating the action of many of such wheels from heavy vehicles. It is used in research to test pavement structures and roadway elements and their response to traffic.
