DETERMINATION OF OVERSIZED VEHICLE TRACKING PATTERNS BY ADJUSTABLE SCALE MODEL

A METHOD IS PRESENTED FOR DETERMINING MANEUVERABILITY PATTERNS OF OVERSIZED HIGHWAY VEHICLES, AND PRESENT METHODS AND FORMULAS USED TO COMPUTE THESE PATTERNS ARE EVALUATED. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT AN ADJUSTABLE SCALE MODEL CAPABLE OF TRACING ALL POINTS INFLUENCING THE LATERAL SPACE REQUIREMENTS OF TURNING HIGHWAY VEHICLES MAY BE OF USE DURING THE ESTABLISHMENT OF VEHICLE ROUTING PLANS, WIDTHS OF CHANNELIZED INTERSECTIONS, AND CRITICAL VEHICLE DIMENSIONS. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE SCALE MODEL DESCRIBED HEREIN MAY SHOW GREAT SAVINGS IN BOTH TIME AND MONEY WHEN VEHICLE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SORT DETERMINED ONLY BY THE CONFIGURATION OF THE VEHICLE ARE DESIRED. /AUTHOR/
