Proposed Standard Fatigue Truck in Montane Speedway of Southwest China
The fatigue truck model is an important parameter in a fatigue evaluation, a 3-axle fatigue truck model was developed based on the weigh-in-motion traffic data and an analytical bridge model in the montane highway of Southwest China. The truck traffic data shows that the fatigue damage was dominated by the 6-axles trucks,a 3-axle fatigue truck model was developed based on the 6-axle truck statistic data,the damage accumulations caused by the Proposed fatigue truck righty meet the actual damage accumulations. Based on the cumulative probabilitie of the moment ranges, the peak stress range is suggested to be a stress level at 3 times of the effective stress range because of overload,however,the ratio of the effective stress in AASHTO was 2 times.The damage accumulations obtained from the simulation of the truck database were compared with BS5400,AASHTO and Proposed fatigue truck, Proposed fatigue truck and AASHTO fatigue truck with the actural daily flow of trucks are suggested in the montane speedway of Southwest China ,BS5400 is impropriety which relatively overestimate the damage.
