SURVEYS AND CONSIDERATIONS ON THE DISTRIBUTION OF TRAFFIC LOADS ON HIGHWAY PAVEMENTS

RILEVAMENTI E CONSIDERAZIONI SULLA DISTRIBUZIONE DEI CARICHI TRASMESSI DAL TRAFFICO ALLA SOVRASTRUTTURA STRADALE

This article describes a photographic survey of a stretch of state highway carrying a high percentage (22%) of heavy vehicles, to determine the distribution of traffic loads across the carriageway. It was confirmed that heavy vehicle tended to occupy a given width of carriageway (85% of the vehicles observed travelling along the same track). The overall road width occupied by these vehicles on tight bends amounted to 49% of total carriageway width, and was even greater on straight sections and wider curves. (TRRL)
