En studie av luftfjädrade allhjulsdrivna lastbilar (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Currently, Scania is not offering full air suspended AWD trucks, which it seems to be a demand for. This study acts as a first step to fulfill this demand. Including, a benchmarking of what competitors offer as well as an investigation and an evaluation of Scania’s current suspension system. Moreover, a requirement specification and a concept generation for a front air suspension system on AWD trucks have been presented. Eight concept were generated, where two were chosen for further study of design, force analysis and roll gradient analysis. It was concluded that there is a market for this configuration, however, implementing it would require extensive design work.

Abstract [sv]

I nuläget erbjuder inte Scania luftfjädring för samtliga hjulaxlar på AWD lastbilar, vilket det tycks finnas ett kundbehov av. Denna studie agerar som ett initialt steg till att uppfylla detta kundbehov. Studien inkluderar inledningsvis en analys av vad konkurrenter erbjuder samt en undersökning och utvärdering av Scanias nuvarande fjädringssystem. Utöver det, har en kravspecifikation och en konceptgenerering för främre luftfjädring på AWD lastbilar presenterats. Åtta stycken koncept genererades, varav två stycken valdes för vidare studie av design, kraftanalys samt krängstyvhetsanalys. Slutsatserna var att det finns en marknad för denna typ av konfiguration, dock skulle det behövas omfattande designarbete för att implementera det.
