Truck Tractor Semitrailer Interchange Coupling Dimensions

2017-08-09
CURRENT
J701_201708
The information in this SAE Information Report is the result of studies by the Automobile Manufacturers Association, American Trucking Association, and Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association, to achieve interchangeability of equipment which will comply with the legal dimensional limitations for the majority of states and yet permit increased loading space within these dimensions. This in no way supersedes other information in the SAE Handbook on this subject. Some cases will require more care in application allowing splash shield clearance at trailer support interference points and positioning fifth wheel to allow trailer swing clearance on an 11% grade. All dimensions are given in inches. Table 1 and Figures 1 and 2 show basic requirements for interchangeability of truck tractor and semitrailer equipment. Figure 3 shows the interchangeability of the doubles converter dolly.

Exterior Sound Level for Heavy Trucks and Buses

2011-09-12
CURRENT
J366_201109
This SAE Standard establishes the test procedure, environment, and instrumentation for determining the maximum exterior sound level for highway motor trucks, truck tractors, and buses. The test results obtained by this test procedure give an objective measure of the maximum noise level emitted by vehicles under a prescribed condition. A subjective rating of the annoyance caused by vehicles in use may not be directly related to this type of noise level measurement.

CURRENT
J2228_201109
This SAE Recommended Practice applies to upper coupler kingpins for commercial trailers and semitrailers conforming to the dimensional requirements of SAE J700 when new and originally installed. The dimensions of SAE J700 are the frame of reference for this document.

Steady-State Circular Test Procedure for Trucks and Buses

2011-09-12
CURRENT
J2181_201109
This test procedure is used to determine the steady-state directional control response of vehicles by measuring steady-state cornering behavior. Due to the wide range of operational conditions to which a vehicle can be subjected, the results of this testing do not provide a complete description of a vehicle's total dynamic behavior; in particular, the procedure does not test the vehicle's response during transient maneuvers. To fully assess a vehicle's total dynamic behavior, it would be necessary to conduct other test procedures in order to evaluate the vehicle's performance as a whole. The extent of instrumentation and the required accuracy of the measurement will be dependent on the goals of the personnel conducting the test. If it is desired simply to determine the general performance characteristics of a vehicle, then this test can be conducted with minimal instrumentation and test item preparation.

Fifth Wheel Kingpin Performance – Commercial Trailers and Semitrailers

2011-07-13
CURRENT
J133_201107
The purpose of this SAE Recommended Practice is to establish test procedures and minimum performance standards for kingpins and their supporting structure manufactured to SAE specifications. The dimensions shown in SAE J700 will permit the establishment of standard clearances in the installed condition which, in turn, will permit fifth wheel manufacturers to design their products to establish interchangeability with any kingpin made and installed to the SAE specification.

Upper Coupler Kingpin – Commercial Trailers and Semitrailers

2011-07-13
CURRENT
J700_201107
This SAE Standard applies to upper coupler kingpins for commercial trailers and semitrailers in the unladen condition. See Figure 1. A 90 degree ± 1 degree angle extends (in all directions) from the centerline of the kingpin to the upper coupler plate surface within a 48.26 cm (19 in) radius. The upper coupler plate surface should not bow downward (convex) more than 0.635 cm (1/4 in) within a 48.26 cm (19 in) radius or more than 0.3175 cm (1/8 in) at a radius of 25.4 cm (10 in) from the kingpin. The upper coupler plate surface should not bow upward (concave) more than 0.15875 cm (1/16 in) within a 48.26 cm (19 in) radius. (See Figure 2.) NOTE—For recommended performance, see SAE J133.

Trailer Axle Alignment

CURRENT
J875_201106
The scope of this SAE Recommended Practice, trailer axle alignment, is to identify the dimensional limits of, and a method to, establish a perpendicular relationship between the king pin centerline and the axle centerline at its midpoint. Various types of equipment are commercially available which can be used for this measurement which provides varying degrees of accuracy, but none can be endorsed by SAE. The most fundamental methods of measurement will be described here, but other equipment is available if a greater degree of accuracy is desired.

Tire Chain Clearance - Trucks, Buses (Except Suburban, Intercity, and Transit Buses), and Combinations of Vehicles

2011-05-17
CURRENT
J683_201105
The purpose of this SAE Information Report is to set up a guide as to body, frame, and wheel housing clearance to accommodate tire chains, and also the minimum bogie spacing to permit using chains on both axles. These dimensions apply to trucks, buses, and combinations of vehicles 10 001 lb (4535.06 kg) GVW and over, and are based upon recommendations of the Tire and Rim Association and of the National Association of Chain Manufacturers. The diagram shows clearance for chains over the tire ONLY and allowance must be made for spring deflections in determining fender clearance. See Figure 1 and Table 1.

A Tilt Table Procedure for Measuring the Static Rollover Threshold for Heavy Trucks

2011-05-17
CURRENT
J2180_201105
The test procedure applies to roll coupled units such as straight trucks, tractor semitrailers, full trailers, B-trains, etc. The test is aimed at evaluating the level of lateral acceleration required to rollover a vehicle or a roll-coupled unit of a vehicle in a steady turning situation. Transient, vibratory, or dynamic rollover situations are not simulated by this test. Furthermore, the accuracy of the test decreases as the tilt angle increases, although this is a small effect at the levels of tilt angle used in testing heavy trucks. The test accuracy is accepted for vehicles that will rollover at lateral acceleration levels below 0.5 g corresponding to a tilt table angle of less than approximately 27 degrees. Even so, the results for heavy trucks with rollover thresholds greater than 0.5 g could be used for comparing their relative static roll stability.
