English term or phrase:WT-L-BHP
Estoy traduciendo un 'Certificate of Title' y uno de los campos dice: Body: PK y otro WT-L-BHP: 3926. Calculo que el segundo se refiere al peso del vehículo pero no sé cómo traducirlo, éxiste un equivalente? o cómo lo traducirían?
Brake horsepower: (BHP)
"A measurement of the actual usable power (not calculated power)
measured at the output shaft (usually the crankshaft) rather than at
the driveshaft or the wheels. Thus none of the auxiliaries (gearbox,
generator, alternator, differential, water pump, etc.) are attached.
It is called the brake horsepower because the shaft power is usually
measured by an absorption dynamometer or "brake." This is not the
brake on the vehicle's wheels but a testing device applied to the
shaft. This instrument is applied to stop or absorb the rotation of
the output shaft and returns a value."
