Forces on the (tire and wheel) during steady running , acceleratio and deceleration .

  1. Sep 25, 2012 #1
    I have 2 doubts .

    First one was to figure out how the positive and negative scrub radius will affect the dynamic toe during braking or accelerating .

    Then it made me realise that to understand this I will have to analyse all the forces acting on the tire (tractive forces) . Then i read up rolling resistance , deformation of tire , hysteresis etc. . But it is not too clear , could you please explain the forces in play between the tire and the road during steady motion , acceleration and deceleration . Vector force diagrams will be of great help .

    Thanks .
