Abstract:

The results of an analysis of the response of a vehicle designed according to the Airoll Principle are presented to serve as the basis for the design of any such vehicle. The results include graphs showing the response of two specific vehicles with variations of weight distribution, speed, tire pressure, and slope of the front and rear sections of the hull. Of these parameters, the position of the center of gravity determined from the weight distribution is shown to primarily affect the stability of motion of any given vehicle. Both vehicles are found to be less stable or more unstable at higher velocities. Author
