Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis describes a Truck Performance Simulation Model developed for use in a United States Department of Transportation university research project entitled "The Energy, Economic and Environmental Consequences of Increased Vehicle Size and Weight." The performance of the truck is found by specifying its engine, driveline and tire characteristics and evaluating its ability to overcome the resistances encountered while traveling on a highway section of specified horizontal and vertical alignment. Fuel consumption, exhaust gaseous emissions, distance, velocity and acceleration are calculated for time intervals which vary in length with the road terrain encountered. The simulation logic is described and suggested methods for testing and validating the accuracy of the truck simulation technique used are presented.
