Antilock or Antiskid Device | Anti-lock Breaking System

36dec 01 anti lock breaking system abs demonstration Anti-lock Breaking System Automobile Engineering antilock breaking system

Antilock or antiskid device The vehicle will stop more quickly if the brakes are applied just hard enough to get maximum static friction between the tyres and road. If the brakes are applied harder than this then the wheels will lock, the tyres will skid or slide on the road and a lesser kinetic friction will result. Then braking the

55525 01 power stering system steering mechanism advantages of Electric power steering Automobile Engineering power steering

Power steering In heavy duty (dump) trucks and power tractors the effort applied by the driver is inadequate to turn the wheels. In this case a booster arrangement is incorporated in the steering system. The booster is set into operation when the steering wheel is turned. The booster then takes over and does most of the work for steering. This

Automatic Transmission | Components of the Automatic Transmission System

7ce74 01 automatic transmission system gear automatic transmission Automobile Engineering automatic transmission

Automatic transmission There are two types of automatic transmission (gear box), namely, semi-automatic transmission and transmission and fully automatic transmission. These are distinguished according to their effect on vehicle handling dynamics. Semi-automatic transmissions are the gear boxes on which all operations normally performed by the driver when changing gear are carried out by electronically controlled actuator systems. This implies that
