Materials Selection in Mechanical Design
The design process engineering materials and their properties materials selection charts materials selection without shape selection of material and shape materials processing and design sources ofExpand
Handbook of vehicle-road interaction
This handbook discusses tyre-road contact forces generated by heavy vehicles, their influence on road surface and bridge response and damage, as well as ways of assessing and improving vehicles so asExpand
Selection strategies for materials and processes
TLDR
The strategies that have evolved to deal with the problem of matching material and process attributes to design requirements are reviewed, the progress that has been made and the challenges that remain. Expand
Interaction Between Heavy Vehicles and Roads
This paper discusses road damage caused by heavy commercial vehicles. Chapter 1 presents some important terminology and a brief historical review of road construction and vehicle-road interaction,Expand
EFFECTS OF HEAVY-VEHICLE CHARACTERISTICS ON PAVEMENT RESPONSE AND PERFORMANCE
The high wheel loads of heavy trucks are a major source of pavement damage by causing fatigue, which leads to cracking, and by permanent deformation, which produces rutting. Among heavy trucks, allExpand
Materials: Engineering, Science, Processing and Design
This is the essential materials engineering text and resource for students developing skills and understanding of materials properties and selection for engineering applications. Taking a uniqueExpand
Path-Following Steering Control for Articulated Vehicles
Passive steering systems have been used for some years to control the steering of trailer axles on articulated vehicles. These normally use a 'command steer' control strategy, which is designed toExpand
COMPARATIVE PERFORMANCE OF SEMI-TRAILER STEERING SYSTEMS
A yaw-roll model of a tractor semi-trailer is used to compare the peiformance of various trailer axle steering systems fitted to a standard length semi-trailer. The model is highly adaptable andExpand
Effects of Vehicle Suspension Design on Dynamics of Highway Bridges
The dynamic response of short-span highway bridges in relation to heavy vehicles with leaf-spring and air-spring suspensions is examined in this paper. Calculation of the dynamic bridge responses isExpand
Spatial Repeatability of Dynamic Tyre Forces Generated by Heavy Vehicles
Road damage due to heavy vehicles is thought to be dependent on the extent to which lorries in normal traffic apply peak forces to the same locations along the road. A validated vehicle simulation isExpand
