Block 12 - Enter a description of the load(s).
Block 13(a) through (d) - Enter "NA" or amount of load overhang in
NOTE: To check the entries in the following blocks, see Figure 4-5.
Block 14 - Enter the number of appropriate axles.
Block 15 - Enter the total number of tires per axle.
Block 16 - Enter the width of a tire times the total number of tires
Block 17 - Enter the tire size.
Block 18 - Enter the axle load of the empty vehicle. Determine the
axle load by obtaining the actual weight of each individual axle.
Get the entry for Block 18(i) from adding Blocks 18(a) through 18(h).
The sums of Blocks 18(a) through 18(h) must equal Block 18(i).
Block 19 - Enter the axle load of the loaded vehicle.
To get this
data, obtain the weight from Block 10(h) and divide it by the number
of axle loads (Blocks 18(a) through 18(h)). According to Figure 4-3,
5,000 pounds is the total weight of all loads (Block 10(h)) and there
are five axle loads shown in Figure 4-5 (5,000 + 5 = 1000). Now you
must add each entry in Blocks 18(a) through 18(h) with the answer to
the division problem. According to Figure 4-5, you must add 8,244 +
1,000; 6,958 + 1,000; and so forth and enter each amount in the
correct column of Block 19. To get the total axle weight with cargo
loaded, add Blocks 19(a) through 19(h) and enter the answer in Block
Block 20 - Enter the axle spacing.
Determine the spacing by
measuring the distance from the first axle to the center of the
second axle for Block 20(a), from the center of the second axle to
the center of the third axle for Block 20(b), and so forth.
Blocks 21 and 22 - Enter any remarks and whether movement by highway
is essential or in the best interest of national defense, as per load
Blocks 23 through 28 - Self-explanatory; however, leave Blocks 24,
26, 29, and 30 blank.
