Typical Vehicle Parameters for Dynamics Studies Revised for the 1980's 840561

Many parameter values are needed for mathematical models which describe the dynamic motions of a vehicle on the road. These include mass and inertia parameters, suspension geometry factors, suspension compliances, damping properties, and tire properties.
This paper is based on many suspension parameter, inertia parameter, directional response and tire tests. It defines the ranges of these parameters that are encountered in production vehicles. It briefly discusses some of the combinations of these factors that are designed into production vehicles. Some general rules for estimating certain of these parameters are stated.
