Studies of truck semitrailer stability during loading and unloading

Arkadiusz Czarnuch


The paper presents the effect of air suspension system on semi-trailers during loading and unloading processes while using a forklift. The mathematical model was created, which takes into account a sharp loading on the rear platform of a semi-trailer. The entry of a loaded forklift onto the rear platform of a semi-trailer causes rapid lowering of the platform, which contributes to an unstable movement of the forklift.
