The automotive industry plays a crucial role in battling the climate crisis and reducing emissions. Medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicles alone contribute to one-fourth of global emissions in the transport sector and there is a positive trend in the demand for these vehicles. Battery Electric Trucks have the potential to transform the growing...

This study aims at a possible solution to predict the fuel consumption of heavy duty diesel trucks, particularly, the tractor semitrailer for their long haul operations using various machine learning techniques. It intends to provide a possible alternative to simulation or physics based models, which often are very complicated. The stringent...

In this thesis a simplified vehicle model was developed using linear correlations between incidental power demand and energy usage at four different stages: 1) propulsion, 2) propulsion during braking, 3) regenerative braking, and 4) maximum regenerative power. In the model the efficiencies of: charging and discharging of the battery, the...

The global fuel consumption by Heavy duty vehicles is an important issue in every climate change summit. Aerodynamic drag consumes majority of fuel at highway speeds. Thus, it is important to strive hard to reduce drag using different techniques. WABCO's SideWing (side-skirt) is an air dam (aerodynamic device) placed along the sides of the...

To limit the threat posed by global climate change it is vital to reduce the emissions of the transport sector in the short term. Two existing aerodynamic add-on devices for the rear-end of a heavy duty vehicle, a tail and guide vanes, are combined in an attempt to achieve a larger drag reduction. A research is performed using numerical...
