T = total weight of the towing vehicle (T) in t: (t)

R = total weight of the drawbar trailer (R) in t: (t)

D-Value result:   (kN)

D-Value calculation (kN)

Theoretical horizontal force between towing vehicle and trailer. The D-value can only be calculated with the permissible total weight of both truck and trailer.

Formel

T = total weight of the towing vehicle in t

R = total weight of the drawbar trailer in t

g = gravitation acceleration 9,81 m/s2


**The total weight of the towing vehicle (T) and of the drawbar trailer (R) refer to the vehicle registration.
**The calculated D-value can be equal to or lower than the D-value of the hitch and of the towing eye.
