Re: Truck Impact Load on the Wall

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Sorry, I'm a little late and hope this is still useful.  The AASHTO bridge code as several (6 I believe) impact levels based on the geometry of the road and speed of the vehicle.  AASHTO's impact forces can be quite severe and can exceed 100k in some of the worst cases.  I suggest you dig into those provisions.
