Linear tire model
Linear relationship between tire lateral force and slip angle.
The class LinearTire has two methods
Fy = TireModel.Characteristic(alpha)
The following table describes the input arguments
|alpha||Tire slip angle [rad]|
|Fy||Tire lateral force [N]|
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.
- Linear tire model
- Valid only for small values of slip angle
