HANDLING TEST PROCEDURES FOR PASSENGER CARS PULLING TRAILERS. VOLUME III - APPENDICES

The document comprises Volume III of a three-volume technical report which summarizes the development of safe-handling test procedures for articulated vehicles. The main technical discussion and summary of results are presented in Volume II. These appendices, which elaborate and support the findings presented in Volume II, include the development of analytical and simulation models, listings of simulation input data for representative test vehicles, and time histories of the actual vehicle responses for simulation validation. Additional plots of data derived from the finalized step steer tests are also presented.
