Select the moving load code of a country.


Self Weight




Weight of pavement (pressure load).


Pavement thickness.

Weight Density

Weight density of pavement.



Barrier load (pressure load).


Self-weight of barrier per unit length.

Additional Load

Additional loads such as noise barrier, guard rails, etc.

NOTE.png The linearly distributed loads entered for Barrier and Median Strip are divided by the widths entered in the Transverse tab and applied as pressure loads.


Median Strip

Self-weight of the median strip (pressure load).


Side Walk

Superimposed weight of sidewalk.


Sidewalk thickness.


Superimposed weight of sidewalk per unit volume.

Crowd Load

Human occupancy load.
