Chassis engineering: Ackermann steering

When we drive a car through a curve, all wheels must turn around the same instant center of rotation, allowing better control and minimizing tire wear. Each front wheel must therefore follow a path with a different radius, being obviously larger for the outer wheel. The instant center of rotation is the point around which… Sigue leyendo Chassis engineering: Ackermann steering

Chassis engineering: Polar moment of inertia

Inertia is the resistance of an object to change its rest or motion status. This property is clearly described in Newton's First Law, which states that an object will remain at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an external force. The polar moment of inertia is the measure… Sigue leyendo Chassis engineering: Polar moment of inertia
