Abstract : Results of investigations on the analysis of accelerations and increasing ride smoothness of trucks are described. The mean square value of accelerations with the predominant number of oscillations at 4 - 6 Hz must be half the accelerations centered at 2 - 3 Hz for self-powered chassis and other machines. Coefficients are recommended to adjust estimates of the influence of oscillations as a function of frequency.
