Risultato della ricerca: Chapter


This chapter deals with the forecasting of vehicle performance on the road, according to the installed engine.It begins with Section 1, which shows the calculation of the resistance to motion, that is, the forces that the vehicle mustovercome to advance on flat roads and uphill. The calculation excludes accidental resistance in curves because it is notessential for predicting the behavior of the vehicle on the road. Section 2 begins with the power characteristic, the forecastby traction–speed and power –speed diagrams, calculation of gear ratios, and then passing to the limits to the estimatedacceleration, feature consumption, and distance. This chapter concludes with a section on the drivability of the vehicle,and sets out the advantages of four-wheel-drive vehicles.
