The Directional Dynamics of the Commercial Tractor-Semitrailer Vehicle During Braking 700371

This paper describes an analytical study of a commercial tractor-semitrailer vehicle which is subjected to various brake applications in a turn. A hybrid computer simulation of the vehicle is used to investigate the effect of loading condition, brake-torque distribution, brake application times, and load-sensitive brake-torque control on the directional response of the vehicle during braking.
