THE INFLUENCE OF TIRE MODELING IN COMMERCIAL VEHICLE SIMULATION
It has been shown that the predicted vehicle rolling motion depends on the manner in which the tires are represented. Omission of tire flexibility introduced errors of 10-20% for the specimen vehicle. It must be concluded therefore that the approximations involved in the representation of tires solely in terms of slip angles can produce unacceptably large errors in the case of commercial vehicles.
