RE: Fire Truck Loads

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The largest load is under the outrigger of a large pumper with a ladder.
I've typically used a 32 kip concetrated load as the criteria based on
information from a truck manufacturer.  This will usually govern the
slabs and sometimes the beams.  We recently received confirmation of
this range of loading from the Anaheim Fire Department based on their
trucks.  By comparison, the HS20-44 has a 32 kip axle load, which for
the slab design translates to a 16 kip concentrated load.

ROB, can you post the following on the SEAOC server; thanks.

I am looking for generalized design information on fire truck loads.
Are 
the fire trucks axle loads limited to AASHTO HS20-44 or is there other
axle 
and lane loading criteria?
