Securing Cargo during Transport on Roads of Different Quality

Martin Vlkovský, Hana Vlachová

Abstract

The article compares the magnitude of shocks generated by the Tatra T-810 on two types of roads (high-quality – highway and lower-quality – roads paved with granite blocks). As the primary data, sets of acceleration coefficients in the three axes (x, y and z) were used as part of a transport experiment using a three-axis accelerometer with a datalogger and a calibration certificate – OM-CP-ULTRASHOCK-5-CERT. Data analysis is performed using descriptive statistics. The mean values and variations of measured acceleration coefficients on the roads we examined are compared. The graphical comparison of the roads studied is covered in a separate section. The results of the transport experiment show that the magnitude of generated shocks is even higher at a lower average transport speeds on a low-quality roads. The distribution of acceleration coefficient values also differs for both roads.
