The Stemco Lp patent solves the following problem:

Trucking is the primary means of long-distance and short-haul transportation of goods and materials in the United States, and in many other countries. Trucks often include a motorized cab where the driver sits and working on cars. cab attached to a box-like cargo section. Smaller trucks often include an integrated cargo section sitting in a unified framework which extends from the front wheels to the rear wheel assembly. The larger trucks often includes a detachable cab unit, with many driven axles, and a special trailer with a long box-like cargo units served on two or more phrases assemblies wheels. These trucks assemblages commonly called semi-trailers or tractor trailers. Most modern trucks' cabs, especially for tractor trailers, fitted with aerodynamic fairings on the roof, side and front. These fairings to help direct air over the exposed surface of the box-like cargo body, generally gave higher (a few feet) than the average roof cab. The flat, projecting front face of a cargo body is a strong source of drag on the cab roof. The use of the front-mounted aerodynamic fairings in recent years have served to significantly lower drag and, therefore, raise fuel economy for trucks, especially those traveling at high speed in the open roads.

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

Stemco Lp’s patent US 9440689 B1 deals with Aerodynamic structures secured to the underbody of cargo bodies.
A flight underbody fairing or skirt that is attached to the rear wheels or bogeys in a cargo truck bodies generally can be slidably adjusted fore and aft along the cargo body. The various embodiments allow for a skirt that attaches bogeys in a cargo truck body and given back to the plane behind the trailer, and a retractable nature to allow for slidable change bogeys fore and aft along the cargo body for the purpose of continuing streamlined flow along the side of a cargo truck body equipped with a side of the border before the bogeys. In various embodiments of the invention, the retractable nature of the invention allows for a continuous edge surface of the plane with the side of the truck cargo bodies came from the back bogeys truck cargo plane body, without attention bogey position.
