AIR BRAKE SYSTEM TRENDS FOR THE 80'S
The air brake system of the 1980's will evolve from the present design because of forces acting on the vehicle manufacturer through the government, the trucking industry and the component industry. Changes will occur to improve safety/performance, maintenance, vehicle efficiency, reduce noise and maintain vehicle compatibility. All of these factors will dictate the cost effective designs of the 1980's.
