Assessing the Possibility of Engine Failure of a MAN 18.284 Truck as a Result of Water Intake when Driving through Water Surface

Jan Mandelik [8] | Bohumil Sejnoha [2]


Abstract: The article deals with a performed experimental investigation of the behaviour of a water wedge and the way forced water splashes while a truck with the weight of more than 8 tons drives through the water surface in relation to the construction and location of its water filter. A course of individual experiments carried out using a comparable vehicle and comparable tires is demonstrated as well as the found parameters and a visual assessment of the shape and manner of the forced-out water movement. In the conclusion there is a summary of the acquired knowledge and its generalisation for the needs of a further use in a technical assessment of the stated issue.
