Abstract:

The review of a particular theoretical tire dynamics model is presented leading to a prediction of side thrust as the result of combined slip angle and camber angle with load as the major parameter. An experimental program to test these predictions has been accomplished using 7.00-16 military tires mounted on a solid axle, unsprung toe-in trailer. The theoretical predictions are compared with the experimental results.
