Combat Vehicle Dynamic Load Tests in the Aspect of the Operation Safety
The scientific team, working in the Mechanical Vehicle and Transport Institute of the Mechanical Department of the Military Technical Academy since the 90's, has been dealing with the analysis of dynamic loads of combat vehicles (tanks, infantry combat vehicles and wheeled armoured carriers). The work presents the combat vehicle tasks and operation tasks and conditions. Possible threats and possible effects of their influence were described on the basis of available information. The results of own model and experimental tests of dynamic loads affecting the aforementioned vehicles were presented. Selected analysis results were presented in a form of characteristics, diagrams and tables. Due to a type of analysed vehicles, the results are of qualitative nature rather than the quantitative one.
