A Study of Air Suspended AWD Trucks

University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM); KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

Abstract: Currently, Scania is not offering full air suspended AWD trucks, which it seems to be a demand for. This study acts as a first step to fulfill this demand. Including, a benchmarking of what competitors offer as well as an investigation and an evaluation of Scania’s current suspension system. Moreover, a requirement specification and a concept generation for a front air suspension system on AWD trucks have been presented. Eight concept were generated, where two were chosen for further study of design, force analysis and roll gradient analysis. It was concluded that there is a market for this configuration, however, implementing it would require extensive design work.
