California Permit and Fatigue Truck Load Development and Calibration

This project will conduct a thorough analysis of California Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) data to establish modern Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFR) load factors for both strength and fatigue limit states. Permit and fatigue load models and associated load factors for California will be recommended for adoption in the California Amendments to American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) LRFD Bridge Design and LRFR Bridge Rating Specifications, and relevant design examples and commentary will be prepared.
