Download E-books Lenksysteme für Nutzfahrzeuge (VDI-Buch) (German Edition) PDF

By Piotr Dudzinski

Das Buch enthält neue Berechnungsgrundlagen und eine praxisorientierte systematische Sicht für die Gestaltung und Bemessung der Lenksysteme an Nutzfahrzeugen. Im Mittelpunkt stehen vor allem Off-Road-, Bau-, Bergbau-, Landwirtschafts-, Forst-, Umschlag-, Kommunal-, Flughafen-, Transport-, Militär- oder Sonderfahrzeuge, mit speziellen Anforderungen an das Fahrzeug, die ein klassischer PKW nicht benötigt. Es wurde die komplexe, leading edge Betrachtung des Lenkverhaltens beim Einlenken, der Fahrstabilität und dynamische Kippstabilität von Nutzfahrzeugen mit beliebigen Lenksystemen (Vorderrad-, Hinterrad-, Allrad-, Knicklenkung usw.) und beliebigen Optionen der Anzahl und Antriebsart der Räder unternommen. In der Publikation wurde den in knickgelenkten Fahrzeugen auftretenden Problemen viel Platz gewidmet, die trotz allgemeiner Anwendung nur über eine bescheidene Bibliographie verfügen. Die praktischen Ergebnisse, gestützt auf theoretische Erwägungen, werden in Gestalt von innovativen mechanischen oder mechatronischen technischen Lösungen dargestellt.
