Development of Unique Load Sensors for On-Board Truck Weighing Systems 870817
Both off-road raining trucks and over-the-road highway trucks need a practical way to determine, as loaded, optimal loading. The on-board truck weighing system described in this paper relies on specially designed load sensors. The 12 points of the design criteria for these sensors are provided, as well as statistical illustration of how, with a very nominal nose pressure, a load sensor assembly of this construction can carry very substantial loads. A properly developed weighing system, like that presented here, can become the central building block to a truck performance management system.
