Dynamic Modeling and Simulation of a 4-Wheel Integral Steering Vehicle
The work deals with the dynamic modeling and simulation of a 4-wheel steering vehicle. The steering system for the front wheels is a classical one (with pinion & rack), while for the rear wheels, a new design with rotational cam & translational follower has been developed by considering the integral steering law. The virtual prototype of the vehicle was modeled - simulated by using the MBS software environment ADAMS of MSC. The results of the dynamic analysis prove the performance of the proposed solution, in terms of handling and stability.
