# Linear tire model

Linear relationship between tire lateral force and slip angle.

## Contents

## Sintax

The class LinearTire has two methods

`Fy = TireModel.Characteristic(alpha)`

*TireModel*.PlotTire()

## Arguments

The following table describes the input arguments

alpha | Tire slip angle [rad] |

## 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
