NTIS: PB 279 004 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :76 pages
This user's manual, extracted from information contained in the final report for the reference project, outlines test procedures to measure the braking capabilities of underground noncoal, rubber- tired mining equipment. Methods to interpret test results, recommendations for safe braking capabilities, and basic techniques to improve braking systems and road surfaces are discussed. Possible applications for runaway vehicle protective devices other than braking systems are reviewed. A listing of mining equipment and brake component manufacturers who supply the majority of equipment to the U.S. noncoal mining industry is included. In conjunction with this list of manufacturers, a general tabulation of brake-related specifications appears for vehicles observed during stopping tests conducted underground.
