Performance Effects of Vehicle Variables 730002

The separate effects of important variables in vehicle and transmission design are evaluated as they relate to performance, and are given in terms of vehicle speed and wheel torque. The significance of the variables is shown in steady-state gradeability and acceleration performance curves, with speed versus wheel torque plotted on logarithmic scales. The effects of vehicle variables as deduced from this analysis may be used as a basis for predicting performance of various vehicle and transmission designs.
