Re: Truck loading

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Tom,

The maximum wheel load is 16 kips.

If this is an underground structure, you might want to check out ASTM C890 
for distribution of wheel loads to underground structures.  C890 is titled, 
"Standard Practice for Minimum Structural Design Loading for Monolithic or 
Sectional Precast Concrete Water and Wastewater Structures," however it does 
give a lot of information on distribution of truck load forces to underground 
structures.
