The prefabricated-unit industry has developed rapidly and the safety of vehicles carrying prefabricated units has received extensive attention. In order to evaluate the safety of vehicles carrying prefabricated units under the action of gusts, the roughness of road surfaces was simulated by the sinusoid superposition method. Furthermore, the wind load was simulated by the harmonic synthesis method. The analysis model of the 13-DOF vehicle was established, and the wind-vehicle-road system was formed. In addition, the safety of the vehicles carrying prefabricated units under gusts was analyzed. It is demonstrated that when a vehicle encounters a sudden gust during driving, lateral deviation of the body will occur. The contact force on the windward side wheel will drop sharply and the wheel is easy to get off the ground, which decides whether a rollover accident happens or not. It sheds light on the safety analysis for ultra-wide and overweight vehicles under gust action.
