Good afternoon,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've tried to find a simplified model for the dynamic forces acting on a rolling wheel, but have had very limited success. I'm looking for a force that is proportional (or related to) the rotational velocity of the wheel (rotational damping) because of the contact point of the wheel.

Would anyone be able to shed light on this?

Thanks.
