The Effects of Operational Parameters on Vehicle Directional Responses 852187
This study deals with a computer simulation study of the effects
of operational parameters, such as load, load distribution, speed,
tire pressure, and tire wear on vehicle directional responses. New
response term, called "Vehicle response index" and
"Vehicle control index" are introduced in order to study
the characteristic response and the possibility of loss of control
either due to too-small (too- large) vehicle response or due to
confusing vehicle responses.
A 12 degree of freedom vehicle model is modified and simplified
for approximate solution on the basis of quasi-dynamic method of
calculation with an appropriate time increment.
