EFFECTS OF TIRE PRESSURE AND LOAD DISTRIBUTION ON DYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF CAR AND TRAILER CONNECTION: EXPERIMENTAL STUDY
Keywords:vehicle, trailer, braking, speed, acceleration, tires, pressure
The results of the experiment suggest that variations in load placement and tire pressure can significantly affect the handling and stability of a vehicle, particularly during emergency braking. When the load is placed asymmetrically, the vehicle experiences uneven longitudinal and transverse deceleration acceleration, which can lead to instability and loss of control. Moreover, reducing tire pressure can decrease longitudinal deceleration and increase transverse acceleration, further exacerbating the problem. These findings highlight the importance of proper load placement and tire maintenance for safe and stable vehicle operation. Further research could explore the effects of other factors, such as vehicle speed and road conditions, on vehicle stability and handling.
