This is a pretty basic question. Do fire trucks produce structural loadings that are equilivant to standard truck loadings? Are there any references that discuss fire truck loadings? I looked in my states Highway Design Manual but could fine no specific mention of fire truck loads.
For the case in point we have several yard structures outside a power plant that must withstand a fire truck either driving across or being parked on them.
