Creation and Evaluation of Bevameter

University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

Abstract: When testing new vehicles, tyres or snowmobiles the snow can differ from one minute to another. Developers need to know what kind of snow they are testing to be able to evaluate the characteristics and performance from the vehicles and tyres. The bevameter measures the stickiness, strength, friction and recovery of the snow with a torque and force number. This device is at the moment too big, it weighs about 70 kg and is 1 meter long and 0.7 meters wide and has to be towed by a snowmobile. This thesis will go through a redesign of the bevameter. The goal is to make this device as simple as possible so everyone can use it and master it. The proposed bevameter should be small, nimble and weigh about 4kg. It shall also be quick and easy to do tests with.
