Active Converter Dolly testing
|Koordinator||CHALMERS TEKNISKA HÖGSKOLA AKTIEBOLAG - Tillämpad mekanik|
|Bidrag från Vinnova||494 400 kronor|
|Projektets löptid||juni 2015 - juni 2018|
Syfte och mål
Verified improvements of vehicle combination performance in low and high speed. Verification of the active dolly itself, as a platform for further research and development.
Förväntade effekter och resultat
The tests will serve as base for several international publications. The work is important for both truck OEMs, e.g. Volvo GTT and Scania, as well as trailer/dolly OEMs, e.g. Parator.
Planerat upplägg och genomförande
The total project includes preparation of the dolly itself, functionality development and verification. This funding application focuses on the verification, which will be: Low speed tests with dolly in A-double combination in June 2015. At least the low speed off-tracking will be tested in 90 degree turn with 12.5 m outer radius. Other low-speed manoeuvres can include reversing. High speed tests with dolly in A-double combination in September 2015. At least the high speed lane change rearward amplification and yaw damping will be tested in 60, 70, 80 km/h.
