dc.description.abstractTo analyze the influence of trailer length on the passing ability of a double semi-trailer road train (B-Train), we built a B-Train model by using TruckSim, and confirmed the limit of the steering wheel angle when all wheels of the B-Train moved forward and the turning radius was minimum simultaneously by choosing dry pavement. Then, the turning process was simulated to analyze the relationship between the trailer length and the turning channel width at low speed. The results showed that increasing trailer length leads to the increase of the turning channel width of B-Train; the turning channel width is larger when the length of the first trailer is increased independently than that when the length of the second trailer is increased independently. In addition, according to the simulation results, we built the relation model between trailer length variation and turning channel width using the least-square theory.
