SIMULTANEOUS DETERMINATION OF THE TRANSFER OF FORCE BETWEEN VEHICLE AND ROAD. AN EXPERIMENTAL CONTRIBUTION TO BASIC RESEARCH

SIMULTANE ERFASSUNG DER KRAFTUEBERTRAGUNG ZWISCHEN FAHRZEUG UNG FAHRBAHRN. EIN EXPERIMENTELLER BEITRAG ZU IHRER GRUNDLEGENDEN ERFORSCHUNG

The objectives of the work were to construct and test measuring hubs which facilitated simultaneous determination of the forces acting in the tyre contact area; to derive equations of movement for a measuring vehicle, with particular reference to the forces determined with the measuring hubs; to equip a vehicle to carry the measuring hubs and other instruments and to undertake the measurements. The construction and action of the front and rear wheel measuring hubs are described in detail, and the kinematic and kinetic equations of movement for the measuring vehicle illustrated. A chapter on the selection, determination, recording and processing of the measured values is followed by sections on the collation of technical parameters and the execution and evaluation of test journeys. The results of the tests are presented. (TRRL)
