Axle Load, Truck Overloading


Most of the modern truck engines are capable of hauling much heavier loads than the legal upper limit. Therefore the truck owners and operators have a tendency to overload these trucks enabling them to get more returns for the same investment and manpower. One of the major factors affecting pavement life is the magnitude and frequency of the wheel load repetitions imposed on the pavement structure. In order to maintain the heavy gross vehicle weight and still stay within the legal axle load limits, the trucking industry has devised the multiple axle configurations, which include rear tandem axle trucks. It is observed from the study, that the percentage of overloading of commercial vehicles is very high, which result in greater extent of damage to the pavement, thus reducing the serviceable life of pavement. From analysis, it is observed that the rate of the growth of deterioration is less when enforcement is implied. It implies that there is necessary to strengthen the pavements much earlier with the present trend of overloading when compared with the enforcement situation, wherein the tandem axles / equivalent standard axle trucks are used to reduce the overloading effect .In the present study, Ahmadabad ring road about 76 km one of the major traffic corridors has been considered to assess the effect of overloading on the design and performance of pavement.
