Semi-trailers are the variation of trailers used for load transportation. There are a number of semi-trailer modifications, but all of them have similar design. Any kind of a semi-trailer consists of a load-carrying platform joined to the truck coupling with of a pivot axle. As a result, the part of the semi-trailer’s gross weight is transferred to the tractor unit’s axles.
The structure overview
The load-carrying platform is structurally divided into the chassis and the actual load-carrying body. The payload capacity of the body directly depends on the technical characteristics. The present-day semi-trailer models are equipped with air suspension absorbing road bumps and ensure the steadiness of the construction and to provide cargo safety. Another important structural component is the frame. A solid frame contributes to the reduction of critical workload towards a semi-trailer’s body.
The combination of a tractor unit with various types of semi-trailers is widely used for freight transportation. The use of semi-trailers helps to optimize a truck fleet, save time and cut down on fuel costs.
