The Influence of Vehicle Design Parameters on Characteristic Speed and Understeer
ISSN: 0148-7191, e-ISSN: 2688-3627
Published February 01, 1967 by SAE International in United States
Annotation ability available
Vehicle understeer is rigorously defined and discussed as it pertains to directional control of an automobile. Methods are presented for predicting understeer quality in proposed vehicle designs and for measuring understeer quality in existing vehicles. The methods make possible complete and accurate quantitative descriptions of vehicle understeer.
