On high-speed, dual-lane expressways, such as the interstate highway system, drivers encountering problems usually park their vehicles on the highway shoulder in close proximity to the outer lane. If a tire change is required, then the vehicle must be jacked up and the aerodynamic inputs from passing vehicles become a design criteria for jacking systems. The study covered by this paper was carried out to determine the magnitude and time history of these aerodynamic forces and moments.
