NTEA recently launched a new Vehicle Center of Gravity and Axle Weight Calculator — a web-based, interactive tool that provides vehicle specification and weight information.
“NTEA is pleased to provide this unique tool to the membership,” said NTEA Technical Assistance Director Steve Spata. “The calculator aligns with our goal of positioning industry companies for operational success.”
When upfitting or modifying a vehicle, these calculations produce information to share with customers, and assist in understanding of Federal Bridge Law information — both in spec’ing prior to purchase and after upfitting is complete. Interactive instructions make this a user-friendly, additional tool for those in your company who are responsible for weight distribution and center of gravity calculations.
· Calculations related to:
o Weight distribution
o Axle loads
o Wheel loads
o Center of gravity in three axes (x, y and z)
· Various bodies, equipment and accessory configurations
· Wheelbase adjustments and axle additions
· Federal Bridge Law information
