    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Tonie Isaksson; [2019]
    Keywords : fatigue; test; design; forwarder; mechanics; structural; machinery; strength; stress; strain;

    Abstract : The fatigue phenomena is one of the most common causes of failures in structural mechanics and is due to repeatedly applied loads. Komatsu Forest AB, one of the largest manufacturers of forest machines on planet Earth was in need of a fatigue life test of a forwarder bunk which exposes the bunk in a realistic way. READ MORE

  4. 4. Vehicle Dynamics and Energy Consumption Evaluation Tool

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för tillämpad mekanik

    Author : Silviu Virgil Margoi; Mahesh Shetkar; [2017]
    Keywords : Regenerative braking; vehicle stability; brake force distribution; energy recuperation;

    Abstract : Regenerative braking systems are a key feature of electric and hybrid vehicles as they allow for significant energy efficiency improvements. However, in certain situations, detailed in the thesis, a mismatch between maximizing the recovered energy and vehicle stability can occur. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling For Competitor Vehicle Analysis

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för tillämpad mekanik

    Author : Martin Ljunggren; Gunnar Sahlin; [2016]
    Keywords : Vehicle model; Competitor vehicle; VI-CarRealTime; Volvo Cars; Driving simulator; Vehicle dynamics; XC90; Tyre parametrisation; Torque feedback;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the development and evaluation of a competitor vehicle model for Volvo CarsCorporation's moving base driving simulator. Vehicle simulations are important when aiming fordecreased development time within the vehicle industry. Simulations help the engineers to front-loadprojects, thereby improving efficiency and product quality. READ MORE
