The purpose of the symposium was to provide a review of the state of the art in commercial vehicle braking and handling. It was also designed to provide a forum in which members of various research organizations, industrial operations, and government agencies involved with the topic could communicate ideas and concerns over problems related to measuring and/or simulating the braking and directional response of commercial vehicles. The symposium had four technical sessions, entitled "The Measurement of Commercial Vehicle Tire Properties," "Brake and Antilock System Performance," "Topics in Computer Simulation," and "An Overview of Simulation and Testing." The symposium closed with a panel discussion on "The Effects of Government Standards on Commercial Vehicle Braking and Handling." /HSRI/
