A new SAE International book narrates the history of heavy-duty wheeled vehicles (HDWVs) and presents the theory and calculations required to design them. Translated from Russian, the book summarizes the results of authors Boris Nikolaevich Belousov’s and Sergey D. Popov’s academic research and experience, and presents innovative technical solutions used for electric and hydrostatic transmissions, steering systems, and active safety of these vehicles. “Heavy-Duty Wheeled Vehicles: Design, Theory, Calculations” consists of three parts, covering history and general design methods, information needs for designing HDWVs, and the basic theory and calculation of innovative technical solutions, as well as special requirements for component parts. HDWVs are all-wheel-drive vehicles that carry 25 ton (23 t) or more and have three or more axles; they find application in various industries including mining, construction, and defense.
