Study on Vehicle Spin Tendency during Braking on Differential mu Surfaces in Four Wheeled Automobile Vehicle
A four-wheeled automobile during braking event in which left and right wheels of the vehicle are on different mu surfaces, has high chances of experiencing spin, which may lead to stability issues on vehicle. This paper intends to provide a mathematical approach to predict the deceleration at which vehicle will spin during braking in a differential mu surface, and determine the effect of influencing parameters on the extent of the vehicle spin tendency. This paper also provides a correlation between theoretical vs actual decelerations for vehicles to exhibit vehicle spin tendency. This paper helps in providing sufficient aid/tool for system designer to predetermine the vehicle spin at early level of system designs and make necessary amendments at initial stage of prototype development rather than late changes, to create a product which gives safe driving experience.
