An Investigation of Container Chassis Brake Lining Maximum Wear Rates 2009-01-0091

An experimental investigation of the minimum mileage between required brake adjustments is presented, for a particular vehicle configuration, fully loaded, on a defined route. To insure the results represented maximum brake lining wear, or minimum adjustment interval, for a container chassis, the operator followed a strict protocol requiring the use of chassis brakes only, except when safety dictated otherwise.
The data collected during the investigation have been tested against a proposed procedure for predicting brake adjustment frequency. This procedure should allow brake adjustment intervals to be predicted for other vehicle configurations and other service conditions.
