Brake calculations for trailers

The basis for designing an air brake system for a trailer vehicle is the brake calculation. This calculation is used to determine, among other things, the following:

  • Brake cylinder size
  • Brake lever length
  • Air reservoir volume
  • Values for ALB controller settings
  • Braking equipment to be installed and the sequence of the equipment within the brake system
  • For EBS systems: Basic information for commissioning the system

With the help of the brake calculation data sheet, all required data is inquired. Then the brake calculation is performed and the air brake system is designed.
