Abstract
Mining haul trucks are operated on different ground conditions subjected to adverse shock loading, creating the need to give more attention to the truck components like suspension, tire, and the operating ground. Extensive experimental research has been done on these components at scale. In order to understand the deformation behavior and the overall relationship between truck components and the operating ground for a full sized truck, mathematical equations have been derived for truck operation on both rigid and oil sand ground surfaces. A rheological model is also proposed here that has the ability to predict the total and individual strain of the components. A model consisting of suspension, tire, and ground is created using MATLAB (Simulink). Finally, using the data obtained from the three methods, graphs are plotted and comparisons made with previous laboratory and field test results to validate the models and their equations.
