Contribution to the Development of a Concept of Driving Mechanics for Commercial Vehicles 830643

In the following essay, vehicle, and test stand related measuring and calculating methods will be introduced which have proven to be a suitable basis for the discussion of the criteria of driving mechanics for commercial vehicles (1 to 23). Because of the progress of electronics development these methods are reliable and quickly performed today.
In connection with tire and brake characteristics, which are the basis for measuring driving maneuvers, and with the knowledge of axle and wheel movement, a purposeful and physically correct evaluation of the driving behavior of vehicles is possible. With the aid of complex mathematical vehicle substitution systems it is already possible to accurately estimate tendencies in the pre-development stage of a vehicle.
