**What is Load Rating? RF = RF =**

The safe live load carrying capacity of a highway structure is called its load rating. How to calculate the rating factor (RF) A1 = Factor for dead loads A2 = Factor for live load C = Capacity of the bridge D = Dead loads I = Impact loads L = Live loads Capacity for (L+I) RF = Actual (L + I) C – A1 * D RF = A2 * (L + I) Load Rating

4
**Factors for LFR Load Rating**

Rating Type A1 = Factor for dead loads A2 = Factor for live load Inventory * Design level 1.3 2.17 Operating Ref: AASHTO Manual for Condition Evaluation of Bridges 1994 Load Rating

5
**Rating Factor Equation**

Inventory Rating C – A1 * D R.F. = A1 = 1.3 A2 = = 1.3 * 1.67 A2 * (L + I) C – 1.3 * D R.F. = 1.3 * 1.67 * (L + I) C/1.3 – D R.F. = 1.67 * (L + I) Load Rating Seminar

6
**Rating Factor Equation**

Operating Rating C – A1 * D R.F. = A1 = 1.3 A2 = 1.3 A2 * (L + I) C – 1.3 * D R.F. = 1.3 * (L + I) C/1.3 – D R.F. = (L + I) Load Rating Seminar

**Live Load Distribution Factor**

AASHTO Standard Specification for Highway Bridges CASE B – Main Reinforcement Parallel to Traffic For wheel loads, the distribution width E = *S 7’ S = Effective Span length in feet 3.24.1 E = *13 = 4.78’ S = 13’ Load Rating

**Impact Load (Impact Factor)**

AASHTO Standard Specification for Highway Bridges 3.8.2 Impact Formula The amount of impact allowance, I, as a fraction of the live load I = 50 / (L + 125) 0.3 L = Effective Span length in feet I = 50 / ( ) = 0.362 Use I = 0.3 Load Rating
