  • On robust controllers for active steering systems of articulated heavy
           vehicles
    • Authors: Shenjin Zhu, Yuping He, Jing Ren
      Pages: 1 - 30
      Abstract: This paper examines the robustness of different controllers for active steering systems (ASSs) of articulated heavy vehicles (AHVs) in terms of the directional performance. Controllers based on the linear quadratic regulator (LQR) technique were designed for ASSs. The success of the LQR-based controllers is dependent on the accuracy of linear models for AHVs. When designing ASS controllers, linearisation of the AHV models is usually necessary; this results in model inaccuracy and un-modelled dynamics, and the robustness of the LQR-based controllers may be degraded. ASSs for AHVs are assessed in the time-domain, which may lead to an incomplete performance evaluation. This paper assesses the robustness of the ASS controllers designed with the techniques of sliding mode control (SMC), nonlinear sliding mode control (NSMC), and mu-synthesis (MS). The ASS controllers are evaluated using numerical simulation in terms of the trade-off between the manoeuvrability and the lateral stability at high speeds.
      Keywords: AHVs: articulated heavy vehicles; ASSs: active steering systems; SMC: sliding mode control; NSMC: nonlinear sliding mode control; MS: mu-synthesis; GA: genetic algorithm; robustness index

  • Economic life cycle of the bus fleet: a case study
    • Authors: Hugo Raposo, José Torres Farinha, Luís Ferreira, Filipe Didelet
      Pages: 31 - 54
      Abstract: The purpose of the paper is to discuss the application of econometric models to life-cycle cost (LCC) of an urban bus fleet with an emphasis on the maintenance costs. The practical results are compared with theoretical ones, which represent a good maintenance and functioning management. The influence of inflation ratio, as well as the price of fuel in the withdrawal time are evaluated. The paper analyses if there is a variation at the time of the vehicle replacement, obtained from several econometric methods namely the annual uniform income and minimisation of the average total cost with reduction to the present value. It also emphasises an eventual relation between the maintenance policy and the reserve fleet, and the relation between maintenance performance and time replacement of bus fleet. Finally, the paper analyses differences between replacement simulations from theoretical econometric models and the same ones applied to real data.

  • Including deformation in a model for engine block dynamics: measurement
           and prediction of vibration
    • Authors: Pär Mikaelsson, Tommy Andersson, MÃ¥rten Olsson
      Pages: 55 - 68
      Abstract: Internal combustion engines (ICE) are sources of vibration in many applications. Engine mounted components need to be designed with respect to fatigue, to withstand these vibrations. In order to compute an estimate of the fatigue life of a component, the vibration load needs to be known. A methodology that is based on a seven degree of freedom model to represent the engine block is proposed. By fitting measured accelerometer data to this model, acceleration levels in arbitrary positions and directions, related to the engine block, may be computed. Results presented for an engine vibration measurement show good agreement between measured and computed vibration levels. A measure to find erroneous accelerometer definitions is also proposed and exemplified through measurement results. The method also enables pointing out local dynamic phenomena at measurement points.
      Keywords: engine; engine block vibrations; engine block twist; rigid body vibrations; vibration measurement; vibration estimation

  • Application of the Taguchi based entropy weighted TOPSIS method for
           optimisation of diesel engine performance and emission parameters
    • Authors: Mohd Muqeem, Ahmad F. Sherwani, Mukhtar Ahmad, Zahid A. Khan
      Pages: 69 - 94
      Abstract: Diesel engines convert chemical energy into mechanical energy generally with low efficiency. However, if these engines are operated at optimum levels of input parameters, they can produce power more efficiently with minimum harmful exhaust emissions. The current research work is carried out with an aim to determine these optimum levels of the input parameters. Four input parameters were selected and their optimum combinations were determined using Taguchi based technique for order of preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS) coupled with Entropy Weight method. Taguchi's L<SUB align="right">25 orthogonal array was adopted to perform the experiments. All the test runs were carried out in random manner with three replicates of each to improve the accuracy of the experiments. The preference values (relative closeness of the distinct alternative to the positive ideal solution) predicted by Taguchi method and the values obtained by regression analysis, at optimum input parameter settings were compared and a good relationship was found between them.
      Keywords: brake thermal efficiency; brake specific fuel consumption; exhaust emission; TOPSIS; technique for order of preference by similarity to ideal solution; entropy weight and taguchi approach

  • Research on a rollover protective technique for a vibroseis truck based on
           reliability analysis
    • Authors: Zhen Chen, Zhiqiang Huang, Dongyang Li, Shuang Jing, Zhifei Tao
      Pages: 95 - 117
      Abstract: Rollover accidents occur frequently in the process of vibroseis truck driving, which endangers the drivers and apparatus. Therefore, we first study the driving stability of vibroseis trucks to determine the limit state function of stable driving. Then, the stable driving reliability analysis of the vibroseis truck could be performed under complicated road stimulation. The analysis results show that the risk of rollover still exists, so it is necessary to install a rollover protective structure (ROPS) on the vibroseis truck. Therefore, we establish a systematic and scientific evaluation index system of safety protection and performance. Then, based on the finite element analysis (FEA) technology, we perform the dynamic simulation analysis of vibroseis truck rollover with and without the ROPS. The ROPS would play a significant role in protecting the vibroseis truck. The research results also provide scientific guidance for the similar design of vehicle anti-rollover structure in the field.
      Keywords: vibroseis truck; stable driving reliability; ROPS; rollover protective structure; safety evaluation; dynamic simulation analysis
