Heavy Truck Steering System Analysis 660431

This paper analyzes present-day heavy truck steering systems to provide a basis upon which to continue improvements. The discussion includes areas which mechanically and physiologically affect steering efforts and structural loads. Consideration is given to steering geometry, component design parameters, and human factors influential in the steering acceptability of a vehicle. This analysis is based on actual vehicle test data and a literature survey of related anthropometry.
