Abstract:

In 1982, a modern test plant was taken into operation at the University of the German Armed Forces in Hamburg, which has very good dynamic properties that make it possible to simulate not only rolling resistance, but also the inertia of vehicle mass and the turning resistance of a tracked vehicle. Herewith, the dynamic loads of real vehicle action on the road and in the terrain can be run on the test stand, true to reality, as it has not been feasible on power test stands employed so far.
