Truck Ability Prediction Procedure
The procedure has been developed to provide a practical method for the prediction of truck performance using accepted data. It Is designed to help anyone concerned with the problem of truck selection. By following directions, it is possible to determine the necessary information for intelligent truck selection without being concerned with the origin or derivation of the complex factors involved. With readily available specification of a truck, information provided in the tables, and minimum of calculation, it is possible to predict: (a) The performance obtainable from a truck of given characteristics under given operating conditions. (b) The characteristics required in a truck to meet different performance requirements under given operating conditions. This report comprises a procedure form and 10 tables of data.
