Calculate truck wheel loads in accordance with the American Association of State
Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Standard Specifications for
Highway Bridges except as modified below. In the design of slabs, beams, and pile
caps, apply an impact factor of 15 percent. Structural elements below the pile caps
need not be designed for impact. When truck loading is transferred through 1.5 ft
(0.45 m) or more of crushed rock ballast and paving, and for filled construction, the
impact forces need not be considered for design. Also, check with local activity for
use of an overload vehicle such as weapons cradles, missile hauling vehicles, etc.
which may have significantly higher wheel loads.
