Abstract To study the effects of cab shape on air drag on trucks a 1:5 scale model of an articulated road train was tested in a wind tunnel. Four independent scales were used to measure separately the air forces acting on the cab, body and chassis. In this way it was possible to study the interdependent aerodynamic effects on the vehicle's main components. A simplified cab model was used. In combination with various body arrangements and heights the shape parameters of the cab (windscreen… CONTINUE READING
