Document Number: J1854_201309
Revision Number:
Title
Brake Force Distribution Performance Guide - Truck and Bus
Scope
This SAE Recommended Practice establishes performance guidelines for the threshold pressure and brake force output of the brakes on the axles of air braked towing trucks, truck-tractors, truck-trailers, and converter dollies with GVWRs over 10 000 lb designed to be used on the highway in combination with other air braked vehicles of this type in commercial operations.

The purpose of this document is to establish target threshold pressures and brake force outputs with reference to brake application pressures as measured at the rear control line gladhand of truck-tractors and towing trucks, the front control line gladhand of non-towing trailers, and the front and rear control line gladhand of towing trailers and dollies.
