Optimum Wheel Alignment for Removing the Uneven Wear of the Vehicle With a Solid Axle

The causes for the abnormal tire wear in a vehicle are largely divided into three types of problems: defects in tire manufacture and structure, problems in tire use environments and problems of the vehicle itself. In the case of the vehicle having structural problems, the dominant causes are found in the steering system and suspension system. In this research, we tried to find the optimum combination of camber and tow with a view to minimize the uneven tire wear in a vehicle of which the front wheel axle is a solid axle. We evaluated the strength of the wheel axle by static analysis and examined the dynamic ductility of camber and tow through the dynamic analysis using the vehicle dynamic force model.
