Site Cornering Analysis Calculator
Cornering is one of the most prominent factors that will affect Tyre Life . There are a few simple Tread Wear tell-tale signs that an engineer will pick up on confirming haul Road Corner design or aggressive Driver Cornering practices .
To get some measure on both these conditions , VBOX Analysis will quickly determine problem corners from Corner Radius , Speed , Super-elevation data which enables Cornering Factors to be calculated.

Site Cornering Analysis Measurement
The Site Cornering Analysis Calculator is designed specifically for Clients wanting to improve their Haul Road Design and Driver Practices. Analysis splits the operation into Short , Average and Long Hauls to quickly focus on site problem areas. There are two corner condition types, namely Banked and Un-Banked bend radii. Un-Banked Corners generally exist in Load and Dump Zones while Banked Corners are generally found on the main Haul.
Exceeding the prescribed Cornering Factor Limits means tyres are subject to high levels of tyre slippage. This Cornering Calculator is used to set conditions of minimum tyre footprint slippage when negotiating corners. Calculations are essentially based on Physics Laws of Motion and Motion in a Circle, so there are desirable limits to the level of Road Super-elevation.
VBOX Analysis allows accurate determination of Bend Radii, Vehicle Speed and frequency of negotiating Corners . This information allows Cornering Factors , Super-elevation levels and Target Speeds to be determined . It also provides detail to make haul road modifications. Coupled with this Longitudinal and Lateral Acceleration data highlights Braking, Accelerating and Cornering Aspects of the operation.
A Site Severity Index is then determined from a range of tyre operating conditions and can then be used to monitor any significant site changes . This data can be logged into a Form and stored on a Data Base so the site can request an Annual Report to view any operational changes or production inefficiencies.
The Site TKPH Calculator package is an ideal tool to be integrated with Systems like :-
