REDUCTION OF FUEL CONSUMPTION BY MEANS OF AIR FLOW EQUIPMENT ON GOODS VEHICLES

SENKUNG DES KRAFTSTOFFVERBRAUCHS DURCH LUFTLEITEINRICHTUNGEN AN GUETERKRAFTWAGEN

STUDIES ARE BEING CARRIED OUT INTERNATIONALLY ON THE EFFECT OF THE CAB DESIGN OF GOODS VEHICLES ON THEIR FUEL CONSUMPTION. INCREASED ENGINE OUTPUTS, HIGHER AVERAGE SPEEDS AND LONGER DRIVING PERIODS JUSTIFY THE EXPERIMENTAL TESTING OF SO-CALLED AIR FLOW EQUIPMENT ON THE CABS OF GOODS VEHICLES. THE RESULTS OF THE STUDIES ARE DISCUSSED AND CONCLUSIONS DRAWN ON THE POSSIBLE USE OF THE AIR FLOW EQUIPMENT.
