FuelMiner at the 2016 Transportation Research Board in Washington DC

Published over 1 year ago @ Minneapolis, MN

FuelMiner paper “Estimation of Rolling Resistance and Fuel Consumption with a Fully Mechanistic Model” was selected to present at the 2016 TRB meeting in Washington DC, January 10-14, 2016. A novel method for the estimation of rolling resistance and its contribution to fuel consumption was presented. The method employs on-road data from an instrumented heavy-duty truck within computer simulations of a fully mechanistic model of vehicle dynamics. The results demonstrate the ability of the mechanistic model to resolve rolling resistance from different pavement types and their contribution to fuel consumption from on-road vehicle data acquired with a simple experimental setup.

FuelMiner report on rolling resistance is out!

Published almost 2 years ago @ Minneapolis, MN

The load of trucks traveling on roads stresses the pavement’s surface, and vice versa, pavement conditions affect truck performance and wear. A better understanding of pavement-truck interactions can help build safer and more comfortable roads, as well as lower truck operating costs. In this report for the Minnesota Transportation Department, FuelMiner isolates rolling resistance from the numerous forces acting on the vehicle to compute pavement-specific fuel consumption. Over 30 different pavement types where tested at the MnROAD facility and two state road sections.
