Abstract

This work was born as a result of the need of measuring the mechanical behaviour of a set of structural elements and joints, to correlate the experimental results from previous on road with the bidimensional Finite Element Models ones. To such purpose the Adapted Vehicles and Transport research group has developed a new test bench that will enable more accurate results from Finite Element Models which will allow optimizing the frame structure of heavy vehicles as semitrailers.
