HANDLING OF CAR-CARAVAN TRAINS DURING BRAKING ON BENDS

FAHRVERHALTEN VON PKW-WOHNANHAENGERZUEGEN BEIM BREMSEN IN DER KURVE

BRAKING ON A BEND IS GENERALLY CONSIDERED A CRITICAL STATE OF DRIVING. WORK IS BEING CARRIED OUT ON DESCRIBING THIS PROCESS FOR INDIVIDUAL VEHICLES, AND THIS WORK IS TO BE EXTENDED TO THE MORE COMPLEX SYSTEM OF CAR AND CARAVAN. WHEREAS IN A PARALLEL STUDY THE PROBLEM IS TO BE DEALT WITH BY MEANS OF A MATHEMATICAL SIMULATION MODEL, IN THIS PROJECT POSSIBLE PROCEDURES FOR TESTING BRAKING ON A BEND ARE BEING CHECKED BY EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES FOR PRACTICABILITY, SIMPLICITY, AND THE VALUE OF THE INFORMATION OBTAINED. IN ADDITION, DRIVING TESTS ARE TO TAKE PLACE TO ENABLE VARIOUS DRIVERS TO MAKE A SUBJECTIVE EVALUATION OF HANDLING. THESE SUBJECTIVE EVALUATIONS ARE TO BE COMPARED WITH THE RESULTS OF OBJECTIVE MEASUREMENTS.
