Axle weights on vehicle model/assembly
I am working up an assembly for a vehicle which has limits on the allowable axle weights for legality and roadworthiness.
I have a mass sensor and centre of mass working, with alarms for going over a target amount of gross mass.
Currently I am calculating the axle weights by measuring the distance from the centre of mass and applying a ratio of this weight to the axle based on the distance from the centre mass and the wheelbase of the vehicle.
I would like to know if its possible to create a mass sensor at the front and rear axle which shows the weight as a function of the distance the axle is from the centre mass.
A formula might be (for example)
FrontAxleWeight = GrossMass * (1-(FrontAxleDistanceFromGrossMass/WheelBaseTotal))
I can measure this distance in the assembly but the measurement itself doesnt stay there and change as the weight changes. Havent figured if this is possible.
