SIMULATION OF STEERING AND BRAKING BEHAVIOUR OF TRACTOR SEMITRAILER VEHICLES IN EXTREME SITUATIONS

BERECHNUNG DES EXTREMEN LENK-UND BREMSVERHALTENS VON SATTELKRAFTFAHRZEUGEN

This paper deals with the simulation of the behaviour of tractor-semitrailer vehicles at braking on wet, slippery road surface. The nonlinear model used for the computation enables a user to simulate extreme situations at wheel locking and swerving. The instabilities during braking such as jackknifing and trailer swing as well as non steerability are investigated. Straightline braking shows the influence of cornering on the behaviour during braking in a turn. /TRRL/
