WEAK SPOTS ON COMMERCIAL VEHICLES: A TYPE SPECIFIC ANALYSIS BY THE RHINELAND VEHICLE TESTING ESTABLISHMENT

SCHWACHSTELLEN DER NUTZFAHRZEUGE; EINE TYPSPEZIFISCHE ANALYSE DES TUEV RHEINLAND

In 1971, the Rhineland Vehicle testing establishment published safety analyses for cars and these have been repeated annually with the participation of all vehicle testing establishments. The analysis given for commercial vehicles, which is the first of its kind, is based on the results of periodic technical supervision by the Rhineland testing establishment. For each weight class and vehicle age class the average frequency of defects was determined and compared with those of the vehicle types investigated. Following this general tendencies are brought out and the most frequent defects arising in each weight class discussed and shown as they occur relative to vehicle age. The scatter bands between the best and the worst vehicle type respectively are conspicuously wide. The comparison of the frequency of a defect for different vehicle types shows clearly how improved technologies behave compared with traditional elements of construction. (TRRL)
