In order to compare the performance of heavy truck suspension system, a 3D dynamic model with 14 degrees of freedom is developed with the dynamic models of the traditional and new air suspension systems to compare the performance of the air suspension systems for reducing the negative impacts on the road surface when vehicle moves on the different road conditions. â ¢ The maximum hitch offset was standardized at m (71 in.) for all configurations; â ¢ The minimum wheelbase for a semitrailer, pony trailer or full trailer was standardized at m ( in.); â ¢ An inter-axle spacing less than m ( in.) between the lead trailer and an A- .

DYNAMIC ROAD LOAD MEASUREMENTS ON A TWO-AXLE SEMI-TRAILER by D G W Mace and C A Stephenson The views expressed in this report are not necessarily those of the Department the dynamic road load measurements. Runs were made with damped and undamped axles, at 32 km/h (20 mile/h) and 64 km/h (40 mile/h), with twin wheels and single wheels, with.

Get this from a library. Dynamic road load measurements on a two-axle semi-trailer. [D G W Mace; C A Stephenson; Transport and Road Research Laboratory.]. Measurements were made on a variety of pavements, at different static wheel loads and speeds, with and without axle dampers, and with different tyre types.

The dynamic component of the load applied to the road surface was not small: the road loads had standard deviations of approximately per cent of the static loads. DYNAMIC ROAD LOAD MEASUREMENT ON A TWO-AXLE SEMI-TRAILER.

The fluctuations in the vertical forces applied to the road surface by the wheels of a vehicle have been measured for a two-axle semi-trailer fitted with a mono-leaf spring suspension. Measurements were made on a variety of pavements, at different static wheel loads and speeds, with and.

Abstract: This paper presents the results of analyses of measurements of dynamic tyre forces generated by a two-axle truck with leaf spring suspension in experiments conducted on a hydraulic actuation system (road simulator).

The road simulator, called DYNmAC, has four actuators equipped with load scales to measure dynamic forces applied by the. The dynamic load coefficient DLC [1][2] [3] [4], [9][10]17] is defined as the ratio of a ratio of the root mean square (r.m.s) of the vertical dynamic tire force over static load., t rms s F DLC.

The most commonly used equivalent load in the U.S. is lb (80 kN) equivalent single axle load (normally designated ESAL). At the time of its development (early s at the AASHO Road Test) it was much easier to use a single number to represent all traffic loading in the somewhat complicated empirical equations used for predicting.

Measurements of dynamic road loads under heavy goods vehicles were made during the 's by Mitschke (), Potter () dynamic road loads caused wheel load variations that were usually A two-axle semi-trailer with air springs.

It is necessary to know the permitted axle load limits and gross vehicle weights, as a driver, truck owner or loader. The axle load limits for the various axle/wheel configurations, maximum gross vehicle weight, maximum vehicle dimensions and the minimum fines for excess axle load or gross vehicle weight are set in the Traffic Act (Cap.

If the load shifts, the load distribution changes, probably in a way that is not helpful. Always make sure the load is secure.

More On Load Distribution. This topic extends beyond just how a load is put in a trailer. On the road, the trailer and the tow vehicle become a system, and the dynamics of the system make it stable (or not).

DIMENSIONS. Regulations pertaining to the operation of trucks and trailers according to Act P.A. ofas amended. NOTE: When restricted loadings are in effect, the normal maximum axle weights allowable on rigid pavements shall be reduced 25% and the maximum wheel load shall not exceed pounds per inch width of tire.

The impact factors quoted above would correspond to dynamic load coefficients (rms dynamic load/static load) of about to 0,25, and the increase in road wear would be about 13% to 38%. Cole () has shown by computer simulation that a degree of spatial concentration of dynamic loads is likely to occur under streams of typical heavy goods.

The optimal axle mass value, for which the dynamic coefficient reaches a minimum, was calculated. Key words: mechanic vibrations, dynamic load, automotive vehicle axle. Introduction In the time of intensive development of the automotive industry, the maintenance and the development of road infrastructure are very big challenges.
