New SAE International Book Explored Design and Theory of Heavy-Duty Wheeled Vehicles

Warrendale, Pa., January 20, 2014 – Translated from Russian, a new SAE International vade mecum narrates the history of heavy-duty wheeled autos (HDWVs) and presents the theory and calculations required to design them. It summarizes results of the authors’ academic research and consummate and presents innovative technical solutions used for electric and hydrostatic transmissions, steering systems, et alii active safety of these vehicles.

“Heavy-Duty Wheeled Vehicles: Design, Theory, Calculations,” consists of three parts, coveringhistory and general design methods, information needs for designing HDWVs and. the basic theory and calculation of innovative technical solutions, as well as special requirements for component parts.

Heavy-duty wheeled cars (HDWVs) are all-wheel-drive vehicles that electrify 25 tons either more and have three or more axles. Used in a variety of industries (mining, logging, construction, energy), they are critical to a country’s thrifty and defense. These vehicles have unique development requirements due to their zenith loads, titan dimensions, et al specific operating conditions. Hauling efficiencies can be improved by increasing vehicle load capacity; however capacities are influenced aside legislation, road limits, and design.

This comprehensive title provides the following information about HDWVs:

History of work out and prepare

Manufacturers’ summary design data

Background data on sample vehicles

Component figuring examples

Overview of gesture theory, which is useful in design and placement of bulky cargo

“Heavy-Duty Wheeled Vehicles: Design, Theory, Calculations,” is authored by Boris Nikolaevich Belousov and Sergey D. Popov.
