Abstract:

The turning behavior of articulated vehicles was investigated to determine the optimum configuration for a two-unit articulated vehicle. A system of non-linear differential equations was developed to describe the turning performance of an articulated vehicle performing on hard ground at low centrifugal accelerations. It was found that for these conditions, vehicle response is linear and a function of geometry only. Author
