Development of Braking Performance Requirements for Buses, Trucks, and Tractor-Trailers 710046

This paper reports the results of a study which had as its aim the determination of braking performance currently achievable by buses, trucks, and tractor-trailers, and the improvement of this performance by use of advanced braking systems. Both vehicle testing and analytical techniques, including dynamic modeling and simulation, were used in the program. Performance qualities essential to braking systems are enumerated, which, when given quantitative definition in the light of performance achievable, can form the basis of rational performance requirements for commercial vehicles.
