Linear tire model

Linear relationship between tire lateral force and slip angle.

Sintax

The class LinearTire has two methods

Fy = TireModel.Characteristic(alpha)

TireModel.PlotTire()

Arguments

The following table describes the input arguments

Outputs

 Fy Tire lateral force [N]

Description

The lateral force of the tire can be calculated as

$F_y = K \alpha$

where $$F_y$$ is the lateral force, $$K$$ is the cornering stiffness and $$\alpha$$ is the tire slip angle.

Hypothesis

• Linear tire model
• Valid only for small values of slip angle
