Suspensions and Their Relationship to Vehicle Roll Stability
  • English
  • 104 pages
Suspensions systems and their related chassis components play a very important part in the overall handling and performance capability of heavy commercial vehicles. SP-940 provides ideas, techniques and data that will be useful to engineers and designers in the heavy truck industry and auxiliary fields such as vehicle dynamics and accident reconstruction. Contents include: roll-stability performance of heavy vehicle suspensions; the directional response of log hauling truck - doglogger; bogie spring fatigue damage - a function of static displacement; analysis of side bending stress of heavy duty truck frame by FEM; and optimal active vehicle suspensions with full state feedback control; performance of a fail-safe active suspension with limited state feedback for improved ride quality and reduced pavement loading in heavy vehicles; camber and toe effect on SBFA heavy truck steering axle tire wear.
