Road Traffic Safety Assessment Based on the ADAMS/Car under Snow and Freezing Weather

Abstract:

Article Preview

In order to assess the traffic safety in snow and freezing weather accurately, determined the difference of vehicle lateral displacement of snow freezing and normal weather conditionsthe as the indicator, vehicle model, road model and vehicle-road coupling model were set up by using software ADAMS/Car. By changing road friction cofficient, road conditions in snow and freezing weather were simulated, step steering were carried out, vehicle lateral displacement of different speed and steering angle were obtained, the difference of vehicle lateral displacement of different speed and steering angle under snow and freezing weather and normal weather conditions were calculated, then the curve of difference of vehicle lateral displacement were generated, traffic safety level division of road under snow and freezing weather were researched based on these curves.
