Default axle capacity calculation

is there a formula to determine GVWR using the axle capacities? for instance a triple axle I saw had 3 6000# axles but the GVWR was 16,000# not the 18,000# that I woulda suspected. thanks in advance .

Gotta figure in the weight of the trailer frame too I'd assume.

Correct...the trailer frame is sitting on the axles too so that weight must be takin into consideration when calculating GWVR.
