Steady State and Dynamic Properties of All Terrain Vehicles Related to Lateral Directional Handling and Stability 891105
All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) lateral/directional handling and stability is predominantly affected by tire and load transfer characteristics, and the lack of a rear axle differential. The combined effect of these characteristics are surveyed in this paper through the use of steady state analysis and simple linear dynamic analysis over a range of vehicle characteristics and maneuvering conditions. Computer analysis results are also compared with field test data obtained with instrumented vehicles.
