The Robust Reliability Optimization of Steering Mechanism for Trucks Based on Non-Probabilistic Interval Model
In the optimization design for steering mechanism of trucks, considering the impact of controllable factors and noise factors, based on the reliability optimization theory, the stable reliability sensitivity method and the robust design method, the robust reliability design for steering mechanism of trucks is extensively discussed. Compared with the conventional probabilistic reliability optimization approach, the proposed method does not require a presumed probability distribution of the uncertain parameters and only the bounds or ranges of their variations are required. The movement precision is chosen as objective function and kingpins distance, axle base, the bottom angle of trapezoid and the arm length are chosen as design variables.
