On the Calculation of Deflection of a Semitrailer Chassis under Various Loading Conditions: an Experimental and Numerical Investigation


In this paper, a simple approach is presented for the calculation of deflection of a semi trailer chassis since the less deflection become a unique selling point of a semi trailer. First of all, by using the 3D data of the chassis a function for the moment of inertia of the cross section is created and then the chassis is modelled as a Euler Bernoulli Beam… (More)
