This suite of 8 spreadsheets allows the designer to undertake the structural design and analysis of a concrete block paved industrial pavement using the method developed by Williams for pavements with HBM sub bases.
The Williams Method is an accepted method of design for any block paved industrial pavements with HBM sub bases.
The spreadsheet calculates the required HBM layer thickness to withstand the user defined loading conditions. The user can choose from three standard HBM specifications.
The spreadsheet includes unique features to analyse the effects of different loading conditions, allowing the designer to quickly specify a HBM pavement design to suit any required loading conditions.
A further set of spreadsheets are included to allow the designer to calculate the Single Equivalent Wheel Load (SEWL) for various pieces of equipment and for shipping container stacking arrangements. This includes spreadsheets for all commonly used wheeled equipment used in industrial sites.
The suite includes a total of 8 spreadsheets;
- A spreadsheet calculating the required HBM layer thickness to withstand the user defined loading conditions.
- 7 Single Wheel Equivalent Load calculation spreadsheets for front lift trucks, reach stackers, straddle carriers, rubber tyred gantry cranes, side lift trucks and tractor/trailer set ups.
