MEXE Analysis Description

This Proforma calculates the load carrying capacity of an arch (up to 40 tonnes gross vehicle weight) based on the modified MEXE (Military  Engineering and Experimental Establishmen ) method as described in the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges Standards BD 21/01 & BA 16/97(Amendment No.2).

There is no guidance in the Standards to determine when axle lift-off will occur. The TRL have recorded the load distribution on double axles crossing a number of humped-back bridges. These results have been used to estimate the effects of lift-off and a spreadsheet has been developed to determine the appropriate axle factor based on the road alignment over the bridge.
