4: Effect of Braking Weight Transfer on Normal Reactions at the Front and Rear Wheels of a Passenger Car (Per Wheel). more weight transfer to the front wheels while braking than a long low vehicle. e. the dip of the vehicle bonnet during braking. Suspension design can incorporate anti-dive geometry to reduce the dip effect, but the weight transfer is still there. 1, in the unladen condition. The ‘unladen’ condition usually includes the driver, and is often referred to as ‘driver-only weight’, DoW, while the ‘laden’ condition usually refers to the vehicle’s ‘gross vehicle weight’, GVW.

Additional factors that affect tyre rolling resistance include wheel radius, speed, tyre mass, type of construction, carcass and tread compound, road surface roughness, tyre temperature, inflation pressure, drive/braking torque, steer angle, camber, and toe of the vehicle. g. sand, gravel or snow, can make a large difference to tyre rolling resistance. 9: Instantaneous Centre and Contact Patch of a Rolling Wheel (The Dashed Circle Shows the Undeformed or Rigid Wheel Circumference). Tyre/road grip or adhesion refers to the tangential force between the tyre and the road.

Tyres are not designed to dissipate kinetic energy by sliding friction and will quickly overheat and suffer serious damage if they skid. However, the basic weight transfer analysis still applies, as shown below. 4d) Newton’s second law: Tyre/road sliding friction: Hence, for all wheels sliding: Note that mt is the coefficient of sliding friction between the tyre and the road. e. 3) still apply even though the wheels are locked and sliding. The difference is that the frictional work to decelerate the vehicle is being done by the tyres on the road, not by the brake friction material on the rotor as is intended.
