The large size of commercial highway vehicles can lead to significant problems in determining their inertial and suspension properties. New techniques and equipment used in the measurement of these properties have been developed and are discussed. Vertical spring deflection behavior, including coulomb friction, for the suspensions of a truck, tractor, and semitrailer are given.
