Impact of Acceleration Aggressiveness on Fuel Consumption Using Comprehensive Power Based Fuel Consumption Model

  title={Impact of Acceleration Aggressiveness on Fuel Consumption Using Comprehensive Power Based Fuel Consumption Model},
  author={Peter R. Bakhit and Dalia G. Said and Laila S Radwan},
  journal={Civil and environmental research},
Changes in vehicle fuel-consumption and emission rates are associated with changes in vehicle cruise speeds and acceleration. Higher levels of speed is believed to be one of the most prevalent factors contributing to fuel consumption. As a result, the relationship between fuel consumption and driving speed behaviour has been the subject of investigation by several research. The main objective of this paper is to investigate the fuel consumption during different acceleration degrees namely… Expand
