Commercial Vehicle Performance and Fuel Economy 700194

The basic variables and calculations of performance and fuel economy are discussed along with test data and recommended values for the parameters that are difficult to ascertain. A hand calculations technique and a computer program for simulating vehicle acceleration time, distance, and fuel economy is discussed. The text is intended as both a state-of-the-art presentation and a technical reference that extends beyond that presented in SAE J688, Truck Ability Prediction Procedure.
