Analytical Modelling of Dump Truck Tire Dynamic Response to Haul Road Surface Excitations
Trucks experience excitations during haulage due to road roughness, generating dynamic loads. Current mine haul road design techniques assume static tire loads, ignoring dynamic forces. This paper presents mathematical models for estimating tire dynamic forces on haul roads. Models were solved in Simulink® and RStudio® to generate random road profile (class D) according to ISO 8608, and compute dynamic forces for 59/80R63 tire. Results show that road roughness significantly affects impact forces on roads, with tire dynamic forces (1638.67 kN) ~ 1.6 times static forces (~1025 kN) at rated tire payloads. The method presented gives realistic estimates of tire impact forces, which serves as useful input for haul road design.
