POWER STEERING FAILURE STUDY. VOLUME II. TECHNICAL REPORT
This report describes the feasibility of modifying power steering systems to prevent excessive steering effort resulting from a power steering failure. Field test data are presented which provide the basis for requirements for maximum steering forces, minimum flow rates and horsepower as a function of vehicle size, maximum allowable delay time (transient time prior to forces exceeding limits), and minimum operation time.
