This appendix presents an evaluation of the turning performance characteristics for several of the design vehicles included in the Green Book and addi- tional vehicles being considered for inclusion as design vehi- cles in future versions of the Green Book.
This comparison was conducted using AutoTURN, a commercially available vehicle turn simulation software program. The evaluation was conducted in three phases. Phase I was defining the parameters of each vehicle to be investigated.
The remainder of this appendix presents each phase of the analysis.
The first step in evaluating the turning performance of each vehicle was to define the parameters of each vehicle. Within AutoTURN, the basic parameters to be defined include the longitudinal dimensions of the vehicle, the widths of the tractors and trail- ers, the tracks of the tractors and trailers, the minimum turn- ing radii, the maximum steering angles, and the maximum articulating angles.
The user can 1 create a customized vehicle by providing the input for all the vehicle parameters, 2 select a predefined design vehicle from within the soft- ware program in which case the vehicle parameters are pro- vided, or 3 select a predefined design vehicle from within the software program and modify the parameters as neces- sary.
When selecting a predefined vehicle from within the program, the user can select design vehicles from sources such as the Green Book and the Canadian design guide. The program does not account for the difference in turning performance between a single axle, double tandem axle, or tridem axle group.
Because the type of axle has only a minor impact on the turning performance of a vehicle, this limitation of the program is not a concern. The program sim- ulates the turning performance of vehicles using calculations based upon the center of the axle groups for both the tractor and the trailer.
Thus, when defining a vehicle, it is important to accurately specify the location of the center of the axle set or group. The sim- ulated vehicles included: Vehicles Considered for Inclusion as Future Design Vehicles Chapter 4 of this report presents the vehicles being consid- ered for inclusion as future design vehicles in the Green Book.
This includes one single unit truck, four tractor-semitrailer combinations, and four double trailer combinations.
This section presents figures that show the detailed parameters of each vehicle. When inputting the design parameters into AutoTURN, in most cases the design vehicle from the Green Book most similar to the proposed vehicle was selected from the AutoTURN program and then modified as appropriate.
In doing so, default values for vehicle parameters such as max- imum steering angles and the maximum articulating angles were applied. Thus, the assumed steering angle for the WB [WB and WB] as speci- fied in the Green Book, or a value very similar to it, was input as the steering angle for the respective proposed new design vehicles.
The basis for selecting a value for an input parameter such as the maximum steering angle is significant because, in par- ticular, this parameter impacts the minimum turning radius of a vehicle.
The minimum turning radius of a vehicle is a function of the maximum steering angle and the wheelbase of the tractor. The minimum turning radius of each vehicle was calculated as shown in Figure C In sev- eral cases, there were slight differences between the calcu- lated minimum turning radii and the minimum turning radii permitted within AutoTURN, in which case the minimum turning radii permitted within AutoTURN were recorded as the minimum turning radii for the vehicles.
C-2 When defining the vehicle parameters for double-trailer combinations, there is a difference in the way the Green Book specifies articulation capabilities of double trailer com- binations and the way AutoTURN defines the articulation capabilities of double trailer combinations.
By con- trast, AutoTURN requires the input of two angles, the steer- ing angle and the articulating angle.
When defining the param- eters of the proposed new double-trailer combinations, the design vehicles from the Green Book most similar to the proposed tractor double trailer combinations were selected as predefined design vehicles from within the software pro- gram, and the parameters were modified as appropriate.
The default articulating angles were applied.
For example, one Width: WB [WB] tractor semi-trailer. Single-Unit Truck The new single-unit truck design vehicle recommended for inclusion in the Green Book is a three-axle truck with an overall length of Minimum centerline turning radius calculations.
The minimum centerline turning radius of this single unit truck is In comparison, the single-unit design vehicle in the Green Book is a two-axle truck with an overall length of 9.
The primary differences between the two vehicles are the number of axles, the overall length of the vehicles, and the wheelbases.Jun 03, · The aim of this study is to conduct a retrospective analysis of the incidence and long-term results of carcinoid tumours of the appendix in emergency appendectomies.
