Q. Knife edge loads – representation of wheel axles?

In BS5400 traffic loads for HA loading are given by uniformly distributed loads along loaded length and a knife edge load. In the code it's not intended that knife edge loads simulate a wheel axle of vehicles. In its place it is just a tool to provide same uniformly distributed loading to imitate bending and shearing effects of actual traffic loads.
