1 Problem 3.1 The rolling resistance force is reduced on a slope by a cosine factor ( cos ). On the other hand, on a slope the gravitational force is added to the resistive forces. Assume a constant rolling resistance force and write the parametric forms of the total resistive force for both cases of level and sloping roads. At a given speed v, a) Write an expression that ensures an equal resistive force for both cases. b) Solve the expression obtained in (a) for the parametric values of corresponding slopes. c) For the coefficient of rolling resistance equal to., evaluate the values of the slopes obtained in (b) and discuss the result. Result: (a) f R (1 cos ) = sin Problem 3. For the vehicle of Example 3.4., a) Calculate the overall aerodynamic coefficient for the same temperature at altitude of 1 m. b) Repeat (a) for the same altitude at temperature 3 C. c) At the same altitude of (a) at what temperature the drag force increases by %? d) At the same temperature of (a) at what altitude the drag force reduces by %? Problem 3.3 In order to have a rough estimation for the performance of a vehicle, it is proposed to ignore the resistive forces to obtain the NoResistiveForce (NRF) performance. a) Derive the governing equations of vehicle longitudinal motion for speed v(t) and distance S(t) by neglecting all resistive forces for the CPP (see Section 3.5).
2 b) For a vehicle of mass 1. ton, determine the required engine power P for achieving acceleration performance of 1 km/h during 1, 8 or 6 seconds. c) Evaluate the power increase factors from 1 seconds to t * seconds defined as [P/P 1 =[P(t * )P(1)]/P(1)], for t * =8 and 6. Results: (a) Pt v v, m m( v 3 3 v ) S, (b) 46.3, 57.9 and 77. kw, (c).5 and.67 3P Problem 3.4 Use the results of Problem 3.3 and, a) Write the expression for the specific power P s (in W/kg) of a vehicle to reach a certain speed v (km/h) from the rest at a certain acceleration time t. b) Plot the variation of P s versus t from 6 to 1 seconds. Repeat the result for three speeds of 8, 9 and 1 km/h. c) Are the results dependent on the vehicle properties?
3 Specific power (W/kg) km/h 9 km/h 1 km/h Time of travel (s) Figure S3.4 Specific power requirements at no resistive force Problem 3.5 At very low speeds the aerodynamic force is small and may be neglected. For example, at speeds below 3 km/h, the aerodynamic force is one order of magnitude smaller than the rolling resistance force. For such cases categorised as LowSpeed (LS), ignore the aerodynamic force and for the CPP assume a constant rolling resistance force F, and, a) Integrate the equation of motion (Equation 3.58 with c=) and use the initial condition of v=v at t=t to obtain an expression for the travel time in terms of speed. b) For a vehicle of 1 kg mass and total rolling resistance force of N, when starting to move from standstill, plot the variation of vehicle speed against elapsed time up to 1 seconds and compare it with the results of NRF model (Problem 3.3). The engine power is 5 kw. Results: (a) m( v v) P P Fv t t m ln F F P F v
4 Velocity (m/s) LS model NRF model Figure S3.5 The time history of vehicle speed Problem 3.6 For the vehicle of Problem 3.5 and using the LS method, find the required power for the 1 km/h acceleration to take place in 7 seconds. Result: 58,849 W. Hint: The following statements in MATLAB can be used with a proper initial guess for x. fun=inline( 71*x*log(x/(x(1/3.6/)))+1*(1/3.6/) ); x=fsolve(fun, x, optimset('display','off')); (x = P/F^) Problem 3.7 For the vehicle of Problem 3.5 using the LS method determine the power requirements for a performance starting from rest to reach speed v at time t, for 3 cases of v=8, 9 and 1 km/h for accelerating times varying from 6 to 1 seconds. Plot the results in a single figure.
5 Power required (kw) 7 65 v=8 v=9 v= to reach a certain speed v (km/h) Figure S3.7 Power requirements for different acceleration times Problem 3.8 The power evaluation for the NRF case (Problem 3.3) is a simple closedform solution but it is not accurate. The LS method (problems ) produces more accurate results especially in the low speed ranges. By generating plots similar to those of Problem 3.7 show that an approximate equation of P=P NRF +.75F v can generate results very close to those of LS method.
6 Power required (kw) v=8 v=9 v=1 Approximate to reach a certain speed v (km/h) Figure S3.8 Comparison between the LS and approximate models Problem 3.9 For the LS case use vdv ads acceleration in terms of speed and, that relates the speed to acceleration and distance, substitute for a) Integrate to obtain an expression for travel distance S in terms of velocity v. b) Derive the equation for a motion starting at a distance S from origin with velocity v. c) Simplify the expression for a motion stating from rest at origin. p1 Results: (a) S C mf [ p1 ln( P Fv ).5v 1 p1v 1], (c) S mf ( p1 ln.5v1 p1v 1) p v 1 1 P With p1 and F v v1. F
7 Power required (kw) Problem 3.1 A vehicle of 1 kg mass starts to accelerate from the rest at origin. If power is constant at 6 kw, for a LS model with F = N, determine the travel time and distance when speed is 1 km/h. Compare your results with those of NRF model. Results: t= 8.3 s, S= m for LS and t= 7.7 s and S=14.9 m for NRF. Problem 3.11 In Problem 3.8 a close approximation was used for the power estimation of LS method. For the general case including the aerodynamic force, the approximation given by P = P NRF +.5F R v is found to work well. For the vehicle of Example plot the variations of power versus acceleration times similar to those of Problem 3.8 and compare the exact solutions with those obtained from the proposed method v=8 v=9 v=1 Approximate to reach a certain speed v (km/h)
8 Figure S3.8 Comparison between the exact and approximate models Problem 3.1 According to the solutions obtained for CTP (see Section 3.6) it turned out that at each gear, the acceleration is constant to a good degree of approximation (see Figure 3.5). Thus a simpler solution can be obtained by considering an effective resistive force for each gear that reduces the problem to a Constant Acceleration Approximation (CAA). In each gear assume the resistive force acting on the vehicle is the average of that force at both ends of the constant torque range. Write the expressions for the average speed at each gear v av, the average resistive force R av and, 1 a) Show that the acceleration, velocity and distance at each gear are ai ( FTi Rav), m v ( t) ai ( t t) v and S i i.5ai ( t t ) v ( t t ) S i Oi i, in which v i vmax ( i 1) and S i S ( i 1) are the initial speed and distance from origin for each gear for i>1 and v and S max for i=1. b) Repeat Example by applying the CAA method.

21 Problem 3. Two specific tests have been carried out on a vehicle with 13 kg weight to determine the resistive forces. In the first test on a level road and still air the vehicle reaches a maximum speed of 195 km/h in gear 5.

The same vehicle is then driven downhill on the same road in gear 5, while keeping the engine speed same as before. Engine powers for uphill and downhill driving are P and U P D respectively. The tyre slip is roughly estimated from equation S x =S +P 1  (%) where S is a constant and P is power in hp. Assume a small slope angle and use the additional data given in the table to determine: a) Uphill and downhill driving speeds b) Road slope Table P3.7 1 Uphill power P U 9 hp Downhill power P D 1 hp 3 Tyre basic slip S. % 4 Gear progression ratio n 4 /n 5 C Results: (a) and km/h, (b) 9.4 % Problem 3.8 For the vehicle of Problem 3.3, a) Derive a general parametric expression for the value of speed v * at the maximum attainable acceleration.
