Calculate Axle Weights for Semi-trailer 1024 563 Sorcha O'Grady

Now you can use the TruckScience Axle Weight Calculator to calculate axle weight distribution for a semi truck with a semi-trailer.  This much sought-after feature is being released in an update to our Axle Weight Calculator today.

We’ve added semi-trailers in response to requests from users all over the world, including Australia, Canada, Ireland, Malaysia, Portugal, Thailand, UK and USA, where the semi truck goes by many different names, including truck tractor, tractor unit and prime mover.

To calculate axle weights for a semi-trailer, simply choose the fifth wheel for your semi truck,  then add the semi-trailer, as well as a body and any ancillary equipment.  You can specify your desired payload and modify your design to achieve it, or have the app calculate the maximum achievable payload for your configuration.  You can also experiment with the kingpin position to see its effect on the weight distribution.
