Vehicle Power
-In the simplest terms, you burn fuel to make horsepower and you use
horsepower to over come all the forces that are trying to retard or hold
back the truck. So, a truck that rolls down the road with MINIMUM drag will
use less horsepower and consume less fuel. The power required to maintain
a given road speed highly depends on aerodynamic drag.
Aerodynamic Drag
-Aerodynamic drag is the result of forces (pressure imbalances) acting on the
vehicle as it passes air. The magnitude of the forces acting on the vehicle
depends on speed, frontal area and external shape. Aerodynamic drag is
the most significant contributor to the vehicle power requirements above a
speed of 50 mph.
