INVESTIGATION MODELS FOR VEHICLE DIRECTIONAL STABILITY- II part
- 1 Faculty of Transport, Technical University of Sofia, Bulgaria
The paper presents a plane mathematical model of two degrees of freedom for vehicle directional stability. This model includes the lateral and yaw motions of the vehicle body. As a result, the model can be used for the analysis of the tire lateral stiffness and tire slip angle on vehicle directional stability. The behavior of vehicle stability has been simulated with MATLAB software. The results give the possibility to investigate the vehicle directional stability and the laterals dynamics process.
