RE: Bridge loading

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
HS25 truck axle loads are equivalent to 1.25 times HS20 axle loads
(25/20).  The front axle for the
HS25 is 1.25 * 8 k = 10 k.  The back axles are 1.25 * 32 k = 40 k.

Someone I work with was asked to do a design for a bridge.  He was told
that HS25 is the standard loading.  Does anyone know what the
corresponding axle loads for this loading would be?
