Volvo Trucks - Appetite for destruction: Welcome to the crash factory

Ever since the 1920s, Volvo Trucks has given top priority to safety. One important part of that work is the many crash tests carried out every year. Come along on a visit to the crash factory.

CRASHES 2013 Volvo FH
► http://www.facebook.com/youcarpress The driver of a new Volvo FH would emerge from an 80 km/h collision without any serious injuries. And if the truck rolled over, there is an emergency exit at hand. But not only the driver's safety has improved. Thousands of simulated collision tests and about 100 real crash tests have allowed Volvo Trucks' engineers to develop a safer truck cab. For instance, high-strength materials such as dual-phase steel have been used in collision-absorbing beams and in the doors. The cab too uses the strongest steel available today for body panelling -- ultra-high-strength, thermoset, press-moulded boron steel.

► Volvo Trucks boosts safety on slippery winter roads
For trucks with drawbar trailers, slippery winter roads and downhill gradients represent a tough challenge for even the most skilled of drivers. There is always the risk of the rig becoming unstable and, in the worst-case scenario, starting to jack-knife. Volvo Trucks has now developed a solution that significantly improves safety. In order to minimise the risk of this type of situation and potential accidents, Volvo Trucks has developed a system known as Stretch Brake that automatically retards the trailer and straightens up the rig on slippery downhill stretches.





MAN HydroDrive
Zuschaltbarer hydrostatischer Vorderradantrieb für mehr Flexibilität bei niedrigem Verbrauch und hoher Nutzlast. Mithilfe des zuschaltbaren Vorderradantriebs MAN HydroDrive können Fahrsituationen und Einsatzbedingungen gemeistert werden, die Fahrzeuge mit reinem Hinterradantrieb nicht bewältigen könnten und somit zusätzlich Zeit und Geld kosten würden. Herzstück der hydrostatisch angetriebenen Motoren ist ein mit der Radnabe fest verbundener Zylinderblock mit acht sternförmig angeordneten Zylindern. In den Zylindern befinden sich spezielle Kolben; auf dem jeweiligen Kolbenboden sind drehbare Rollen angebracht. Diese Rollen stehen im Kontakt mit der wellenförmigen Kontur eines außen umlaufenden Nockenringes. Wird nun der MAN HydroDrive eingeschaltet, setzt eine am Getriebeausgang angeflanschte Pumpe die Radnabenmotoren mit bis zu 420 bar unter Druck. Diese werden dadurch in Drehung versetzt, dass immer abwechselnd nur bestimmte Zylinder mit Druck beaufschlagt werden, während gleichzeitig bei anderen Zylindern das Öl abfließen kann. Bei den unter Druck stehenden Zylindern wird der Kolben nach außen gepresst, die Rollen stützen sich am Nockenring ab und es entsteht ein Drehmoment. In traktionskritischen Situationen genügt ein Dreh am Sperrenschalter, um die Weiterfahrt zu ermöglichen und Verspätungen und zusätzliche Kosten zu vermeiden. Das heißt, mehr Terminsicherheit und höhere Effizienz. Mit MAN HydroDrive ausgerüstete Fahrzeuge sind flexibel einsetzbar, da sie sowohl auf der Strasse als auch in unbefestigtem Terrain effizient unterwegs sind: Trotz des erweiterten Einsatzspektrums sind Nutzlast und Kraftstoffverbrauch auf dem Niveau eines Fahrzeugs mit reinem Hinterradantrieb. Gegenüber einem Fahrzeug mit konventioneller Allradtechnik ergibt sich eine Gewichtseinsparung von etwa 400 kg. Den MAN HydroDrive gibt es vom 2- bis zum 4-Achser für viele verschiedene Fahrzeugtypen verfügbar

Heald Ltd 30 tonne truck Vehicle Barricade Road blocker HCR4M1200RB at MIRA FODEN impact test
http://www.heald.uk.com -Tested at MIRA on Friday 20th March 2009 the Vehicle Barricade Road blocker attained the highest PAS68 specification currently available. The only Road blocker of its kind to have passed both PAS 68 (30 tonnes/ 50MPH) and also holds the US Department of State K12 certification. The Vehicle Barricade withstood an impact with 4 times the energy of a standard K12 test, and took just over 1/4 second to stop a 30 tonne truck travelling at 50mph.





First Delivery of World's Strongest Truck
The first customer of the Volvo FH16 700 truck, Tore Aase from Norway, has taken delivery of the first world's most powerful truck in Tuve, outside Göteborg in Sweden, where the truck is built. The truck will be used in long-haul operations in the west of Norway, hauling equipment for the oil industry. The world's most powerful truck, with 700 horsepower and a massive 3150 Nm of torque, is built for the most demanding haulage assignments, without increasing either its emissions or fuel consumption.
