Equivalent Single Axle Load For design of highway pavements—rigid and flexible—one of the most significant inputs into the design process is the traffic volume and composition. Heavier vehicle axles have significantly higher potential for causing damage to pavements than lighter axles. Passenger cars and pickup trucks are excluded from the calculation of wheel load impact on pavements. In order to standardize the vehicular impact on the condition and life expectancy of a pavement, AASHTO Guide for Design of Pavement Structures converts all vehicle axles (sing…
