Design Consideration for Mounting a School Bus Body on a Truck Chassis 720297

This paper outlines the chassis requirements which enable the school bus body manufacturer to attach his own body successfully to the chassis with a minimum of interference.
It describes the cooperative effort made by the major truck chassis and body manufacturers in recognizing problems and formulating objectives for their solution. The areas included in their discussions and formalized in design objectives were: dimensional references, changes made by the body manufacturer, and responsibilities of the chassis manufacturer. Detailed design illustrations are also presented.
Finally, the paper describes body attachment, and then discusses problem areas that remain to be solved.
