The virtues of bond graph modelling are exploited for analysing ground vehicle stability. A bond graph model is first constructed, in a rather contrived manner, for a rigid body vehicle. From this basic model, transverse load dynamics, wheel compliance, frame bending, and more, can be easily included. The resulting overall model yields first-order state equations in a direct manner. The procedure is demonstrated through several examples. (Author/TRRL)
