The stiffness of truck scales is the main influence factor on its measurement accuracy. Three kinds of SCS-100T large electronic truck scales are different in size arrangement of U-beam. Based on the finite element method, the models of the truck scales were established. The stiffness and strength of the scales were compared on account of the analysis results. The results show that U-beam arrangement of the low at both ends but high in the middle structure for the truck scale not only can save material but also meet the requirement of stiffness. Simulation analysis provides the theoretical basis for the structural design of truck scales.
