This course covers a wide range of transmission technologies specifically adapted to or developed for truck and off-highway vehicles. Concepts associated with high–torque / high–inertia vehicles and those unique to power distribution systems are examined. Building on an assumed base knowledge of common automotive-level transmission technologies, the course extends those technologies, where applicable, to truck and on-highway use. Then the focus moves to transmission and power distribution systems unique to off-highway applications such as powershift transmissions, skid-steer and articulated vehicles along with how dual-clutch and automated manual transmissions apply to non-highway vehicles.
By completing this course, you will be able to identify, recognize or articulate:
Who Should Attend
The intended audience for this course is powertrain engineers, component suppliers, vehicle platform powertrain development specialists, engineers involved in the application or design of transmissions, or other technical personnel who need to understand the operational theories and functional principles of truck and off-highway vehicle transmission systems.
A general basic understanding of modern transmission technologies, such as those common in manual and automatic passenger vehicle transmissions is required.
