Effect of Lateral Tire Flexibility on the Steering System Dynamic Behavior 910239
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the influence of tire lateral flexibility on the steering system dynamic behavior. Individually, the steering models and the lateral flexible models have been investigated for a long time. However, the combination of both hasn't yet drawn much attention. The inclusion of the lateral (rigid) tire model has shown to be of great importance. This study attempts to scrutinize the influence of a more practical tire model on the steering dynamic performance. Included in the study, Transient response as well as frequency response are illustrated by tables and figures.
