PROCEDURE TO ESTIMATE LOADING FROM WEIGH-IN-MOTION DATA

Truck weight data collected from weigh-in-motion (WIM) sites were used to develop a procedure to estimate truck load factors for pavement design purposes. A conceptual procedure that uses WIM data to derive equivalent single-axle load factors for different types of trucks is presented. Sets of load factors can be developed for different types of facilities. An example is provided to illustrate how these factors can be used by engineers to calculate project design loading. Applying these factors to traffic classification counts collected from the statewide traffic monitoring program, engineers can also compute network traffic loading history.
