Paper Title:
Study on High-Speed Lateral Stability of Car-Trailer Combination
  Abstract

Since the handling behaviour of car-trailer combination is more complex and less predictable than that of non-articulated vehicles, the drivers may lose control of the vehicle in some hasty steering maneuvers. The kinematics of car-trailer combination has been analyzed with a 3 DOF model. A modified Vehicle Dynamics Control system was designed to improve the lateral stability of the trailer. The dynamics simulation for lateral stability of car-trailer combination has been performed on the multi-body model. The results show that the lateral stability of car-trailer combination, including yaw rate and roll angle has been improved with the modified Vehicle Dynamics Control system.
