Title: SLAB ON GRADE: Truck Wheel Load
I have used pavement design theory for this. From Highway Design by Arthur Bruce one finds d= sq rt.  of 3W/S where d = thickness of pavement, W = wheel load and S =  allowable flexural stress of concrete. The critical section is at the corner of the slab.

Don't have my copy of AASHTO here in "Clinton Country."

Can someone give me the standard for a truck wheel load (incl. contact area or wheel pressure or whatever) as defined in AASHTO?

Does anyone use anything different from this for design for truck wheel loading on a slab on grade?

Thanks.
