Estimation of Fuel Consumption Savings in a Wheeled Vehicle 2002-01-2182

Fuel consumption depends on the automobile constructional parameters, speed and operational conditions. Since they determine the dynamic qualities as well, it is expedient to use that common dependency to find a complex solution of both problems.
As it was stated in Estimation of Dynamic Qualities of Undercarriage Machines at ATT 2001 Conference and Exhibition in Barcelona, the assessment methods known up to now assume that the resistance with moving is a constant. The influence of loading and speed modes on the power losses is not taken into account.
The paper presents methods of theoretical study on the economic qualities of a transport undercarriage machine considering the multi-factor influence of operational conditions.
