Vehicle Weight Management: New Tools for Easier Analysis

Tuesday, March 3, 1:30–2:45 p.m.

Bodies, equipment and trailers affect vehicle and axle weights, Bridge Law and certification conformance. Learn how using web- and cloud-based tools can improve your weight analysis processes. Hear a review of weight basics, including gross vehicle weight rating, gross axle weight ratings, center of gravity, Bridge Law, unloaded vehicle weight, payload, and more. Presenters will share case studies using available tools from NTEA and TruckScience, demonstrating how to assess effects of adding equipment, bodies and trailers, and vehicle cargo management, along with federal Bridge Law implications.

Presented by: Jens Hellberg, Managing Director, TruckScience; Bob Raybuck, Director of Technical Services, NTEA; and Steve Spata, Technical Assistance Director, NTEA
