The Cornering Compliance Concept for Description of Vehicle Directional Control Properties 760713

The automobile directional control system is not easily simplified and the description of its design or engineering properties has necessarily been complex. In this paper, a concept for combining vehicle design parameters into two terms, and rear cornering compliance, is proposed. Analysis and simulation results are presented to illustrate the correspondence between the front and rear cornering compliance parameters and vehicle steady state and transient responses.
The results indicate that the cornering compliance approach is reasonably accurate, easily understood and complementary to existing directional control theory and conventions.
