RE: Golf Course Bridge Design & AASHTO

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Sounds like about an H15 load to me-if you want to use AASHTO.  They used to
have an H10, but it was dropped.  It's best to have the client give you (in
writing) the max. load and wheel footprint he wants the bridge to carry.
