Design and Analysis of Multi-Axle Steering System of Heavy Duty Vehicle 931919

This paper presents a new method which adopts the theory of multi-rigid body system dynamics to solve the kinematics of multi-axle steering system of heavy-duty vehicle, introduces several new concepts such as component coordinate system, intermediate datum coordinate system, train component analysis method, and so on, develops a kinematics analysis software for steering system, takes QY80 auto-crane as an example, analyses the kinematics of four-axle steering system. Basing on the kinematics analysis, this paper creates the mathematical model of optimization for the steering rocker mechanism, chooses minimization adoptive random search method to develop an optimization design microcomputer program, and optimizes each design variable finally.
