Title: CAD Tools - Vehicle Turning Sim
Post by: deejay21 on August 20, 2018, 05:02:32 PM
Hi

As I understand it, the VTS is only for slow speeds, but does anyone know what the maximum speed it can be used for is? I want to use it as a guide for designing haul roads in quarries (which aren't very fast anyway).

Any help would be appreciated.

Design your path and test with one of your vehicles, after simulation select "Lock to Lock Chart" to examine the lowest speed. The speed is calculated from "Lock to Lock" time.

Over a certain distance the driver is supposed to maneuver the steering Wheel, narrow bends will result in heavier maneuvers and lower speed.
