The VAL Bus Chassis and Some European Comparisons 650106

This paper describes the evolutionary design process which had to be traversed in order to reach a coach design solution that would satisfy the particular requirements of Vauxhall Motors Ltd. It shows how an increased number of small tires will carry a given gross vehicle weight with a more efficient load distribution pattern than large single tires.
The paper concludes that a twin-steer, small-tired coach carrying 50 or more passengers on a single deck is an extremely safe, good riding, and highly maneuverable vehicle.
