A comprehensive survey of the literature yields this integrated overview of truck and articulated vehicle handling safety technology. Research utilizing modeling, mathematical analysis, and experimental techniques has been evaluated to determine its role in providing safe operation of trucks and articulated vehicles on the highway. In this paper the application of this technology to the solution of safety related problems and to the establishment of operational limits is discussed. Conclusions on the present state of truck and articulated vehicle technology are provided along with recommendations for future work in this area. /Author/
