Calculating Tire Overlap during Steady-State Cornering Maneuvers 2012-01-0242

Vehicles running in wet conditions may experience hydroplaning of one or more tires. Hydroplaning can, and often does, change vehicle braking, acceleration and handling characteristics dramatically. Proper analysis of this behavior requires accommodating the clearing of paths for the rear tires that may result from the front tires engaging the water-coated surface first. In this work, tire overlap is calculated for vehicles in steady-state cornering maneuvers for generalized vehicle dimensions and tire characteristics.
