Experimental Determination of Vehicle Lateral Drift Characteristics under Laboratory Conditions

Abstract:

Article Preview

Safe driving requires from the driver several visual-mental activities (perception, recognition and decide) and manual activities relating to the implementation of specific movements. Vehicle responding to the given force is subjected a three axial loads that are transferred through the frictional coupling of tire and pavement Generated during the movement, in particular, curvilinear, lateral drift forces act directly on the tire tread and indirectly by steering to the driver. The value of these forces depends on the angle of the lateral drift, motion parameters and surface type. The paper presents results of experimental determination of lateral forces on the drift the running machine with five-component hub.
