Force and Moment Test Method(STABILIZED Jun 2020)
This SAE Recommended Practice describes the determination of passenger car and light truck tire force and moment properties on a belt-type flat surface test machine. It is suitable for accurately determining five tire forces and moments in steady-state under free-rolling conditions as a function of slip angle and normal force which are incrementally changed in a given sequence.
Committee recommends to stabilize the document. Auto and tire manufacturers are running their own force and moment methods so there seem to be no users of the document. However, if the Committee determines in the future that by revising the method more users could be attracted to use it then the document can be brought out of stabilization for revision.
