Fuel Consumption of Underground Mine Haul Trucks

2016-11-23  The Fuel Consumption Index (FCIndex) for CAT AD45B were determined by developing a computer program in MATLAB based on the truck’s best performance characteristics. FCIndex weights the rate of fuel consumption by the Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of truck. GVW is the sum of the truck’s weight and its payload. Figure 2 presents FCIndex as a function of truck’s GVW and Total Resistance (TR). TR is the sum of the Rolling Resistance (RR) and the Grade Resistance (GR) of the haul road mine. RR is defined as a measure of the force required to overcome the retarding effect between the truck
