RE: Golf Course Bridge Design & AASHTO

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We did something similar to that. Use 100 psf live load or 4.8 kPa. Use ACI
Provisions since AASHTO is for truck loading. Golf Carts fall in the
category of live loads as specified in UBC. (See Table of minimum live
loads). Hope this helps.
