Software for Fleet, Vehicle, & Equipment Maintenance
Concept/Demonstration Truck Sponsorship
Sponsor demonstration truck for developing and evaluating new technologies.
Demonstrate advanced truck thermal management systems at full scale.
Evaluate contribution of underhood airflow to overall aerodynamic drag.
Evaluate use of shutters for aerodynamic drag control.
Determine benefits to be gained, if any, from further reduction of radiator
frontal area (or are we facing diminishing returns?). Improved aerodynamics
has the potential to substantially increase fuel economy, but streamlining the
cab puts a greater demand on the cooling system because of reduced frontal
area and a tighter engine compartment.
Develop non-EGR emission control strategies.
