Effect of Tire Camber on Vehicle Dynamic Simulation for Extreme Cornering

Vehicle behaviors under extreme cornering are complex events that might result in rollover accidents. Simulations have been extensively used in the auto industry to protect vehicles from such accidents. Predictive capability of simulation relies on how accurately the math-based model represents the vehicle and its operating condition. Camber effects of tire are studied in this paper to promote the accuracy of simulation. First, a tire model with simplified camber effect is introduced, and the comparison between the model results and test data is shown. Then, a more precise model that includes camber effects on cornering stiffness and friction coefficient is presented. The comparison between these model results and test data is also given. In addition, the camber effects on tire overturning moment and loaded radius are studied. Finally, vehicle fishhook simulation with different tire models is conducted to further investigate the effect of tire camber on vehicle dynamics.
