Kefid · Standard 3-axle dump trucks, driven at a crawl speed, were used in the load tests and data were collected continuously as the trucks crossed the bridge. Data were collected for four different load paths with two test runs being conducted for each path. The locations of strain gages and the truck paths used are shown in Figures 5 and 6
Kefid · AASHTO Vehicle Live Loading. By. Civilax. -. April 4, 2020. 1288. Past, Present, and Future. The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials Load and Resistance Factor Design code (AASHTO …
Kefid · girders. Two three-axle DelDOT dump trucks were filled with sand and used as the controlled live loads. The diagnostic load tests measured strains in the floor beams and through girder as controlled live loads caused by the two three-axle dump trucks were driven in different configurations over the bridge.

Liming · timber mat can be utilized to reduce the total moment caused by a load by distributing the load over the length of the bridge. Therefore, the same percentage of moment would still be taken by each girder, however the moment would be slightly less because of the load distribution of the timber mat. 3) Construction Live Load Design Guide Handbook
Liming · itself (that is, the dead load). Bridge Impact Criteria Previous TS&W studies have used bridge ratings as the basis for estimating whether bridges were structurally adequate to handle heavier truck loads expected under alternative truck size and weight scenarios (see Figure VI-6). Two ratings traditionally have been used by bridge engineers to
Liming · maximum loads again as Fig. 3 indicates. The design truck in the new Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code for 2000 (CSA 2000) representing the minimum live load for bridges in the national highway system, has a total vehicle weight of 625 kN with axle positions as in the 1979 OHBD truck. With a load factor of 1.70, the total
Kefid · Traffic control: This consists of one lane closure at a time for a two-lane bridge, and two lanes at a time (if possible) if the bridge carries three or more lanes of traffic. Loaded vehicle with known axle weights: In general, a three-axle tandem dump truck has been used to complete the load tests. The truck is first loaded up to its legal
Liming · Phase I stats used for axle loads. Theoretical lowbed loadings. Conclusions: • As in Phase I, live load factors were found to vary by bridge component, bridge length, and design vehicle. • As in Phase I, modified BCFS design vehicles were calculated that would allow a single live load factor to be used for all bridge lengths and components.
The live load testing was performed using a tandem axle dump truck and single-axle truck under both static and quasi-static controlled load conditions. The experimental results from the current work were used to evaluate three characteristics representative of bridge response: lateral load distribution, skew effect, and shear key relative
Liming · During this time period, the trucks were positioned and the live-load tests on one load path were completed. Two similar heavily loaded tandem rear axle dump trucks were used to apply the live-load. Truck A had a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 223 kN (50.1 kips) while Truck B had a GVW of 229 kN (51.5 kips).
HL-93 live load vehicle. The design tandem, representing two trailers in series attached to one truck, consists of a pair of 25.0-kip axles (50-kip total vehicle weight) spaced 4.0 feet apart, with the transverse spacing of wheels set as 6.0 feet. The design lane load consists of a load of 0.64 klf uniformly distributed in the longitudinal
Liming · BCL-625 design loading described in Figures 3.2(a) and 3.3(a) is the designated live load unless Approved otherwise. 188.8.131.52.2 CL-W Truck Delete the third paragraph and replace with the following: A BCL-625 Truck, as specified in Figure 3.2(a) shall be used. Note: The total load of the BCL-625 Truck is 625 kN, but the axle loads and
Kefid · How much can a quad axle dump truck haul? The average quad-axle dump truck is limited to about 17 tons of payload each trip, in compliance with the federal bridge law, as well as most state bridge laws. A Super Dump, however, hauls up to 26 Tons of payload each trip.
The truck consisted of three physical axles including a front steering axle with single tires and tandem axles with dual tires at the end. According to Han et al. (2018), this type of the loaded

Use Strength II, Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) for girders as well as slab design. Include Dynamic Load Allowance, IM = 33%. 5.
Kefid · Phase I stats used for axle loads. Theoretical lowbed loadings. Conclusions: • As in Phase I, live load factors were found to vary by bridge component, bridge length, and design vehicle. • As in Phase I, modified BCFS design vehicles were calculated that would allow a single live load factor to be used for all bridge lengths and components.

Liming · subsequently perform analyses on collected data. As part of the project, live load testing was performed on each bridge prior to opening them to traffic. The goal of this study was to evaluate and compare baseline performance of the three new bridge decks under live load demands. Data from the transversely-oriented strain gages cast in the decks
