Using an Over-the-Road Dynamometer to Test Tractors Equipped with Retarders 811259

A mobile dynamometer for measuring the longitudinal force acting at the fifth wheel connection between a tractor and a semitrailer has been developed. The use of this dynamometer for testing retarders installed in tractors is described and example results are presented. Computational methods for predicting total retardation of various vehicles equipped with retarders are discussed.
