Subject: Fire truck loadsI need to check an existing concrete slab over a parking garage for the weight of a fire truck of 80,000 lb. The client thinks he has the structural drawings for the slab (hallelujah!) so I will know the reinforcement and concrete design strength.Is there a standard load configuration for a fire truck in any of the US codes ?Any ideas about what the maximum wheel load or axle load might be with the ladder up ? (It's alongside an 11-storey building).What area of tire contact should be used ? I usually calculate tire contact areas by dividing the wheel load by the tire pressure, but what tire pressure so they use typically with big tires like this ?Any ideas and help would be appreciated.Kevin Below, Quebec
