Stability of Vehicles

Stability of Vehicles

 

the ability of vehicles to oppose external forces that cause them to deviate from a specified direction of motion or position of equilibrium (roll, trim, pitch, etc.) and to return to the original mode of motion or position of equilibrium after such forces cease to act.

The stability of a wheeled or caterpillar-tread vehicle is a function of the wheelbase, the front and rear tread, the location of the center of gravity, the adhesion of the wheels or tires to the road or other surface, the profile and condition of the road or surface, and other parameters. Aircraft stability is provided by the empennage of an airplane or helicopter, the wing ailerons, and the blades of helicopter rotors. The stability of ships depends on the shape of the hull, the displacement, and the position of the metacenter.

We need to conduct frequent inspections on the stability of vehicles on our roads.
It is an active safety system that monitors the roll and directional stability of vehicles. The system can automatically intervene, independent of the driver, when a high risk of instability is detected, thus helping to reduce the likelihood of accidents particularly associated with rollover, skidding and jackknifing.
Especially, the lateral stability of vehicles has been the focus on attention to designers.
In this method by installing controllers on rear motors lateral stability of vehicles at high speed has been controlled.In this paper, obtaining maximum brake force by using mechanical brake with constant force and electrical brake with the probability of adjusting slip at the same time is aimed.
Exceeding the limits of friction between the wheel and the substrate leads to the disturbance of the stability of vehicles. The coefficient of friction changes depend on:
