Compliance with the Bridge Formula weight limits is determined by using the following formula: W = the overall gross weight on any group of two or more consecutive axles to the nearest pounds. L = the distance in feet between the outer axles of . Calculate the Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) limit of your dump truck according to the Federal Bridge Formula (FBF) and Federal Bridge Law (FBL).Plus, input the tare weight of your truck to calculate maximum payload, and enter your pay and workload numbers see your truck's daily, monthly, and yearly production capabilities (in terms of material hauled AND money earned).
commodities are transferred are allowed ten percent additional weight to the maximum gross weight. For example, if a combination vehicle is allowed a gross weight under the Bridge Formula of eighty thousand (80,) pounds, with this exception of ten percent, the total gross allowed would be eighty-eight thousand (88,) pounds. For example, the internal bridge can be both sets of tandem axles (4-axle bridge) or the axles of the tractor (3-axle bridge). Dump trucks, concrete mixing trucks, trucks engaged in waste collection and disposal, and fuel oil and gasoline trucks: Maximum Gross Weight – 70, pounds Maximum Weight on Front Axle – 14, pounds.

53 rows The Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula, also known as Bridge Formula B or the Federal Bridge Formula, is a mathematical formula in use in the United States by truck drivers and Department of Transportation (DOT) officials to determine the appropriate maximum gross weight for a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) based on axle number and spacing.
The formula is part of federal weight. Bridge formula definitions The purpose of the Federal bridge weight formula is to protect bridges on the Interstate System by controlling the num-ber and spacing of truck axles.
For a step-by-step way to check vehicle weight and exceptions to the formula, go to and down-load the Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula page.
Explaining the maximum weight any combined set of axles on a truck and trailer can carry to cross a bridge on the Interstate highway system. The following Federal bridge formula is used for calculating acceptable weights: W= [ LN/N-1 + 12N + 36] W= the overall gross weight on any group of two or more consecutive axles the the nearest pounds.
Group Type - Maximum Allowable Weight Single Axles - 20, pounds Tandem Axles - 34, pounds Tridem Axles - 42, pounds Other Axle Groups - based on the Bridge Weight Formula. Tire Limitations. The weight supported on a tire may not exceed pounds per inch width of tire, if that tire is on: 1.
A steering axle 2. Bridge formulae are used for truck size and weight regulations in the U.S., Canada (Ontario), Mexico, Europe, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. What is Bridge Formula. The minimum distance between the extreme axles of any two axle groups – for a given total gross mass on the axles within that distance – is controlled by the relevant.
The Bridge Calculator is a more complex App. Calculating results via the Bridge formula is fairly straight forward, in itself, but there are several variations that can make it more difficult to determine the correct figure to go by. For example, there are rules that supersede the Bridge formula calculations.
(a) The provisions of the section are applicable to the National System of Interstate and Defense Highways and reasonable access thereto. (b) The maximum gross vehicle weight shall be 80, pounds except where lower gross vehicle weight is dictated by the bridge formula.
(c) The maximum gross weight upon any one axle, including any one axle of a group of axles, or. Loads exceedingpounds gross, or axle weights in R, may only purchase single trip permits. Axle, bridge, and gross weight allowances will be determined based on the non-divisible bridge table formula ~ x (LN/N-1 + 12N + 36) or in accordance with the bridge table.
9 feet wide axles are allowed % more weight. Before checking a vehicle for compliance with the Bridge Formula, its single-axle, tandem-axle, and gross weight should be checked. Here the single axle (number 1) does not exc lbs., tandems and do not exc lbs.
each, and the gross weight does not exc lbs. These preliminary requirements are thus satisfied. Weight: 4 Gross - 80, pounds maximum; Single axle - 20, pounds; Tandem axle group - 34, pounds 5; Triple axle group - 42, pounds 5; Quad axle group - 50, pounds 5; 1 Length limit may only be increased with a permit if the vehicle combination complies with the permit requirements both with and without a load.
2 Length may not be increase with a permit. Interior combinations of axles, such as the "tractor bridge" (axles 1, 2, and 3) and "trailer bridge" (axles 2, 3, 4, and 5) must also comply with weights computed by the Bridge Formula (see figure).
The maximum gross vehicle weight allowed by 23 USC is 80, lbs., except where a lower gross vehicle weight is dictated by the Bridge Formula. Legal Weight Calculator on the South Dakota Truck Information website.

85, lbs (Subject to State Bridge Weight Formula) Note: Triple Axles (or more) do not have a defined limit but the vehicle(s) still cannot exceed gross weight limits. Gross Weight: The maximum gross weight is determined by finding the maximum bridge weight for the unit or combination that can be found here.
The maximum allowed Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW), or the maximum allowed total weight on any group of consecutive axles on a vehicle, is determined by the Federal Bridge Formula (FBF).
The maximum Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) on Interstate highways is 80, lbs, even when the result of the formula is greater. The Federal Bridge Formula (FBF). The formula for the calculator is a weight-to-length ratio. This formula was enacted by Congress and the State to limit the weight-to-length of a vehicle crossing a bridge.
The formula is W = [LN/N-1 + 12N + 36] W = Maximum weight in pounds on any group of two or more axles. Bridge Formula calculations yield a series of weights (Bridge Table, pages ). It is important to note that the single-axle weight limit replaces the Bridge Formula weight limit on axles not more than 40 inches apart, and the tandem-axle weight limit replaces the Bridge Formula weight limit for axles over 40 but not more than 96 inches apart.
This mathematical formula uses number of axles, axle spacing, and gross weight to solve for ‘w’ or the max gross weight that can be carried on any group of 2 or more axles. Bridge Formula or Formula B.
• Gross weight is defined as the total weight of the vehicle or vehicles and the load thereon. • Maximum single axle weight is 20, lbs. • Maximum tandem axle weight is 34, lbs.
• The Federal Bridge Formula Chart is used to determine violations of bridge law. • Maximum legal width is feet. • Maximum height is 14 feet (except. For example, under the federal bridge formula, the amount of weight a single drive axle can carry is limited to a maximum of 20, pounds (34, pounds for a tandem axle system).
The full weight the truck is allowed to carry is based on total number of axles and distance from center of the forward-most axle to the rearward-most axle.
