DEVELOPMENT OF VEHICLES FOR DIRECTIONAL STABILITY

Although the theoretical requirements for vehicle stability have been understood for some time, the emergence of front wheel drive (FWD) as the norm for some vehicle classes has introduced new problems. This paper discusses the practical methods available to counteract torque steer and new measurement methods of potential use in vehicle development for evaluating the effects of suspension and aerodynamic changes.
