Long Description: Figure 12. A Bird's Eye View of Control Vehicle CS after Coming to Rest in the Brake-in-a-curve Maneuver with the ABS Disabled on the Drive Axles - Graphic Illustration

Figure 12 contains both a line graph and a graphic illustration. The line graph demonstrates the path deviation in inches and the time in seconds of stopping distance for braking-in-a-curve for 1 to 5 axle trucks. The variations between vehicles are less than 10 ft. and are not significant. The graphic illustration is a bird's eye view of a control single vehicle stopped in a jackknife position on a curve (Graphic Illustration).
