Performance Improvement of On-Center Regulation for Large Sized Vehicles 2000-01-3433

The toe-change of road-wheel, so-called compliance-steer(CS), caused by suspension compliance is proved to occur around a steady instantaneous center under steady run at constant speed. The adverse/proverse CS, that increases/decreases the side-slip angle versus the velocity vector of vehicle, is realized by locating the center rearward/forward of the axle. By designing the front/rear wheel CS as a proverse/adverse CS with nonlinear compliance that is large at on-center but small at off-center, vehicle characteristics to reduce lateral deviation caused by disturbance and to improve tracking performance are possible.
