Research Motivating Problem:
Long Combination Vehicle (LCV) are transport and energy efficient. But, if not cleverly designed, they can have limited motion performance, e.g. grade-ability, off-tracking, rear-ward amplification.
Optimal Distribution (over axles) of propulsion for LCVs
- Which axle/axles is/are best to propel with respect to productivity (incl. energy and other performance and economy)?
- How should such propulsion be designed, including conceptual control?
- Proposal of distributed propulsion, generally and for some specific LCVs.
