Help from brake engineer needed

Hi,

I am converting my E-350 RV to 3-axle truck by installing another rear axle behind original. Before I can start these modifications I need to make a good plan & calculations for Vehicle Registration and approval center here in Finland. And if they approve calculations I can start doing these mods. They approve it if I can point out that these modifications improve safety(ie. shorter stopping distance from 60MPH to zero, better vehicle stability etc.). But I need help with calculating braking efforts(current braking effort compared to after modifications). And also I need help in deciding how to install ABS to 6-wheel application. If someone is intrested in helping me with these calculations pls contact me. I can provide you with basic data needed(dimensions weights etc.)


Tero

Re: Help from brake engineer needed

Have you tried contacting any brake manufacturers? Bendix has helped a company I worked for on motorhomes a few years ago. You could try contacting them and see if they have any suggestions. Here's from their website.

For technical support, call 1-800-AIR-BRAKE (1-800-247-2725), Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. EST, and follow the instructions in the recorded message.
Or, you may e-mail the Bendix Tech Team at TechTeam@bendix.com.
