Analysis of Tandem Axleloads by Elastic Theory

Herbert F. Southgate, Robert C. Deen & James H. Havens
AASHO Road Test tandem axleloads were analyzed to determine the magnitude of the tandem axleload that causes the same damage as the 18-kip (80-kN) single axleload. The procedure is outlined and is the same used to analyze single axleloads. The essential findings were as follows: 1. One repetition of a 34-kip ( 151-kN) tandem axleload appears to cause the same damage as one repetition of an 18-kip (80-kN) single axleload. 2. The relationships of log...
