    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies the requirements for interchangeability of non-dedicated combination vehicles for coupling of prime movers, converter, dollies and semitrailers to provide compatibility and adequate clearances in normal use on both sealed and unsealed roads.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for interchangeability of non-dedicated articulated combination vehicles in normal use on both sealed and unsealed roads. These requirements are applicable to prime movers, converter dollies, and semitrailers. This Standard covers the interchangeability for coupling of prime movers, converter dollies, and semitrailers to provide compatibility and adequate clearances, however it will not guarantee that any particular vehicle combination will satisfy legal requirements (e.g. vehicle dimensions, or load distribution), or provide optimum dynamic stability.Clearances around the point of articulation are specified for operation of a vehicle at its maximum permitted dimensions, when at angles of pitch of 6 degrees forward, 7 degrees rearward, and for angles up to 45 degrees of articulation.
