Integrating Anti-Lock Braking Systems With the Directional Control Properties of Heavy Trucks
Published January 01, 1985 by Institution of Mechanical Engineers in United Kingdom
Existing computerized models of articulated heavy trucks are used to investigate driver/vehicle system performance in (a) braking in a turn and (b) straight-line braking on a roadway with sidewise differences in friction level. Results from simulated maneuvers are employed in examining directional control difficulties that may be experienced during antilock braking of empty and fully laden commercial vehicles operating on poor, wet road surfaces. The findings of these analyses are used in discussing (1) implications of various antilock control strategies (worst-wheel or independent-wheel arrangements, for example) on directional control during braking, (2) vehicle-performance testing, and (3) type-approval calculations.
