Write 8 pages thesis on the topic car transport trailer design. Small car engines have a lower capacity and do not perform well if the load is attached to them. However, engines of more than 2.0 litters are considered good for car transport trailers. Off-road SUVs with engine capacity of 2.5 to 3.5, litters perform really well when attached with the car transport trailers.
The wheelbase is the exact distance from the centre of the front wheel to the centre of the rare wheel from any one of two sides. The track is the distance between the front wheels or the rare wheels. The distance is measured from the centre of the tires. Ground clearance is the height of the car from the ground up to the lower body of the car or a clear space from the ground until silencer or any other car part. Ground clearance influences the centre of gravity of the vehicle. If the centre of gravity is above the ground, the vehicle will lose control on edges and while moving to steer. Lower ground clearance is better but it is set according to practicality and available size dimension.
Previously only metal beams and sheets are used to manufacture a car transport trailer but modern car transport trailers are manufactured with fibreglass or aluminium alloy materials. However, the base is still manufactured with solid steel. The use of the material is selected according to the designed weight-bearing ability of the car transport trailer. The selection of the material depends on various factors like availability, cost of the material, rigidity and durability required and practicality.
Materials play an important role in determining the strength of a design. Steel is always considered the best material to achieve durability and rigidity. Steel has a larger index of elasticity and it suits the designs that require rigidity and durability. Steel is a term used to represent iron that has been mixed with little quantities of carbon, manganese, nickel or other elements and compounds to enhance its physical as well as chemical properties.
