CARB COMPLIANCE:

Carb Compliance at a Profit Aerodynamics

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has adopted a regulation to improve the fuel efficiency of combinations of heavy-duty tractors and 53' trailers through implementation of tractor and trailer aerodynamics and low rolling-resistance tires. The regulation is officially the Heavy-Duty Vehicle Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction Regulation.

AERODYNAMICS 101:

Aerodynamic drag is a function of squared velocity. At highway speeds, it accounts for approximately 65% of the fuel consumed by a tractor-trailer.

Wind Tunnel Trailer

The four major areas of aerodynamic drag on a tractor-trailer are the:

  • Front of the tractor
  • Gap between the tractor and the trailer
  • Side/underbody of the trailer
  • Rear of the trailer
