Ride rate, Roll rate calculation : part 2

part 1 5. Select the static deflection and corresponding frequency from the graph. (2π wF)2 W2 = KRF (2π wR)2 W4 = KRR wF = front ride frequency KRF = ride rate front W1 = static weight on front inner tire W2 = static weight on front outer tire W3 = static weight on rear inner […]

Tire size characteristics

When suspension limits the width of the tire, for any iteration we have to change wheel diameter. So some points from the experts at Tread Hunter to be remembered while deciding wheel size. Bigger wheel increases resistance to bending, hence leads to increase in reliability. Bigger wheels lead to higher steering effort and decrease in […]

Ride rate, Roll rate calculation : Part 1

Ride rate is defined as vertical force per unit vertical displacement of the tire ground contact with respect to chasis. Roll rate is defined as torque resisting body roll per degree of body roll. Assumption made in calculation. 0 degree camber change with ride no tire lateral distortion. steady state cornering ie without longitudinal acceleration. […]
