With ever-rising steel prices, it makes great
economic sense to install concrete platform
weighbridges. Apart from low costs, it offers
high strength and is virtually maintenance free
requiring no painting every year. Its life is 100
years as compared to that of 15 years of a
typical steel platform. Due to the advantages of
concrete platforms, the developed world has been
using them for over 30 years. In Europe 95 of
electronic weigh bridges are made with concrete
As the platform gets longer, cost saving
increases. Modern day transportation is moving
towards using longer trucks and trailers. MNC
truck manufacturers, such as Volvo, who have
started manufacturing in India, are introducing
longer models which are capable of carrying
heavier payloads. The concrete platform
weighbridge can bear heavier loads. That is why
all modern bridges that one sees on the city
roads are either concrete or composite.
A heavily loaded truck entering the weigh bridge
gives heavy jerks on braking. Vibration thus
caused, reduces the life and accuracy of the load
cell and thus needs to be reduced to minimum.
Vibration is much more in the case of steel as
compared to concrete as it absorbs vibration.
Advantages of concrete platform over steel
Cost The cost of material required for
construction of concrete platform is
approximately 40 less than that of steel
platform. Material quality Quality of steel
is always a suspect owing to the presence of a
number of local companies which make cheaper and
inferior quality steel, thereby decreasing the
life performance of steel components over time
whereas the onsite construction of concrete weigh
bridges helps monitor quality capacity.
Enhancement The construction of the concrete
platform is designed so as to carry a load up to
100 tons by using heavy duty load cells. Hence
the capacity of the weighbridge can easily be
enhanced up to 100 tons, if required, without
incurring any extra cost whereas in the case of
steel platform weighbridge, the capacity cannot
be increased with the existing steel structure.
Joints plates of higher proportions would be
required. Add to all this the cost of the cells
which will need to be replaced.
Maintenance Due to rattling of steel
structure, nuts bolts get loosened thereby
requiring periodic tightening. Also steel gets
rusted due to changes in the environment over a
period. Being a totally RCC structure, there is
no rusting of components in concrete platforms
hence they are totally maintenance free.
Design Steel being flexible tends to bend
rattles when the truck comes onto the platform.
Due to this there is a lateral pull of the load
cells wherein ideally the load should be
transferred vertically. The concrete platform is
a rigid monolithic structure. As soon as the
vehicle comes over the platform, the load gets
distributed to all 6-load cells.
Strength Steel structure being lighter by
weight than the gross load of the vehicle coming
on the platform, a cantilever effect takes place
with inverse forces taking place at the ends
thereby having a tendency to twist the steel
structure causing weighing errors. The concrete
platform being a heavy mass has more stability.
Hence, no inverse forces take place in the
RCC Weighbridge
Lightening Steel structured weigh bridges are
prone to electro-static charge high electric
field caused by strong winds lightening which
may damage the weighing instrumentation load
cells. The platform of concrete structure is
totally immune to such environmental harshness,
thereby the system more stable maintenance
Life The steel platform/girder structure gets
weak due to rusting loosening of nuts etc. The
top plate joints have a bending effect after
few years. The concrete platform has a very long
life and no bending effect takes place.
Transportation The steel structured
weighbridge is fabricated at works is
transported to site by truck for installation on
the foundation thus incurring heavy
transportation costs. The construction of the
concrete platform is cast on the foundation, at
site, thus saving on transportation.
Vehicle movement Vehicle movement sudden
braking tends to break the anti-skid strips
welded onto the steel platform requiring
re-welding of the strips by dismantling the load
cells, thus rendering the weighbridge out of use
for some time. In the case of concrete platform
weigh-bridges, vehicle movement is arrested due
to rough surface of the concrete platform.
