Yaw Instability Due to Longitudinal Load Transfer During Braking in a Curve 1999-01-2952

Active vehicle dynamics control ensures improved safety. So far, yaw instability is mostly associated with transient steering manoeuvres when driving at a constant speed. However, braking related load transfer affects yaw stability. Intense braking at high friction combined with elevated and forwarded CG amplifies this influence on unloaded tractors. Designing a dynamic stability system to enhance active safety requires fresh insight into braking related yaw instability.
This investigation covers a theoretical analysis of braking influence on yaw stability on unloaded 4×2 tractors, being applicable to vehicle braking while cornering, including steering induced by other asymmetrical forces, since it focuses essentially on small steering angles.
