Polynomial tire model
Nonlinear relation between tire lateral force and slip angle expressed by a third order polinomial equation. This model is used by several authors   .
Fy = TireModel.Characteristic(alpha)
The following table describes the input arguments:
|alpha||Tire slip angle [rad]|
|Fy||Tire lateral force [N]|
\[ F_y = k_1 \alpha - k_2\alpha^3 \]
where \(F_y\) is the lateral force and \(\alpha\) is the tire slip angle. \(k_1\) and \(k_2\) are the model coefficients.
- Nonlinear tire model
- Valid up to the maximal lateral force (Tire saturation).
