Abstract:

To enhance the performance of the Active suspension Scorpion light tank it is intended to control the tension and perimeter of the vehicle tracks. This report details the initial system design and specification of the Active tensioning system. The basic configuration and operating principles are considered including operation under failure conditions. The load cases, velocity and displacement requirements for the tensioner are derived from test data and the basic system sizing is defined. The report concludes with a system specification against which the detail design will be conducted.
