Development and Construction of a Lightweight Frameless Trailer


Within the European Union the dimensions of semitrailers are strictly regulated. To optimalise the loading capacity of semitrailers the net tare weight has to be reduced. This enables to carry more load and/or reduction of fuelconsumption. The internal dimensions of the semitrailer can be enlarged by using new materials like composites. This also will enlarge the volume loading capacity of the trailer.
