The high gravity center of the concrete mixer truck reduces the truck’s stability while steering. The rolling stirring tank makes the stability even worse than the regular engineering vehicle due to the dynamic variation of the centroid position. Most of the researches on the rollover stability of concrete mixer trucks focus on the rollover model establishment and dynamic simulation module. The change of concrete centroid is ignored when the safety cornering speed is calculated. This paper proposes a pre-warning method for the cornering speed of concrete mixer trucks based on centroid dynamic simulation. In the method, the mixing tank stirring model and the vehicle driving dynamic model are established on the Fluent and TruckSim simulation platforms, respectively. The theoretical speed threshold obtained by simulation is used as the evaluation index of the warning speed in the curve. Firstly, the dynamic simulation of the stirring tank model is carried out by Fluent. According to Newton Leibniz numerical calculation method, Matlab is used to obtain the mathematical model of the centroid position and the main parameters of the stirring tank. Then the model is verified by the neural network algorithm. Finally, according to the dynamic position and lateral acceleration of the vehicle’s centroid, the dynamic simulation is carried out by TruckSim to obtain the theoretical speed threshold. The pre-warning system can warn the driver according to the comparison of real-time speed and calculated velocity threshold. In this paper, a 7.8 m3 concrete mixer truck is selected for simulation experiments. The results show that the lateral offset of the centroid is up to 206.4 mm and the maximum lateral force is 682N under normal working conditions, and the safe turning speed of the vehicle is reduced by at least 4.71% due to the centroid change. The pre-warning method proposed in this paper can improve the safety of cornering traffic effectively, and can be utilized in the further intelligent transportation system.
