A PROPOSED MODIFICATION OF THE BRIDGE GROSS WEIGHT FORMULA

A study was conducted using 201 different truck configurations and the entire bridge system of one state to develop a proposed modification of the current Bridge Gross Weight Formula. A new proposed formula is presented that minimizes the concerns for long trucks with a large number of axles. The proposed formula is less sensitive to axle group length and the number of axles than the current bridge formula.
