  • tire deviation angle — An angle formed by the direction of travel of a vehicle and the steered direction (that which the wheels are pointing). It is produced by distortions within the tire, due to external forces. Not to be confused by actual slipping or skidding. Also …   Dictionary of automotive terms

  • slip angle — The difference in the actual path taken by a vehicle making a turn and the path it would have taken if it had followed exactly as the wheels were pointed. The slip angle is the result of the tire carcass s flexibility and is the angular… …   Dictionary of automotive terms

  • Slip angle — In car handling, slip angle is the angle between a rolling wheel s actual direction of travel and the direction towards which it is pointing (i.e., the angle of the vector sum of wheel translational velocity v X and sideslip velocity v Y). This… …   Wikipedia

  • slip angle — 1) the angle between the x axis and direction of travel of the center of tire contact. 2) the angle between the direction in which a tire is aimed or steered and its actual direction or, in other words, the angular difference between the wheel… …   Mechanics glossary

  • angle — See ackermann angle approach angle attack angle cam angle caster angle departure angle dwell dwell angle front triangle heading angle …   Dictionary of automotive terms

  • Tire load sensitivity — describes the behaviour of tires under load. Conventional pneumatic tires do not behave as classical friction theory would suggest. Friction theory says that the maximum horizontal force developed should be proportional to the vertical load on… …   Wikipedia

  • Slip (vehicle dynamics) — In vehicle dynamics, slip is the relative motion between a tire and the road surface it is moving on. This slip can be generated either by the tire s rotational speed being greater or less than the free rolling speed (usually described as percent …   Wikipedia

  • tire forces — the external force acting on the tire by the road having the following components: longitudinal force; driving force; braking force; rolling resistance force; lateral force; slip angle force; camber force; normal force; central force; tractive… …   Mechanics glossary

  • Slip joint pliers — Common, two position straight slip joint pliers Slip joint pliers are pliers whose pivot point or fulcrum can be moved to increase the size range of their jaws. Most slip joint pliers use a mechanism that allows sliding the pivot point into one… …   Wikipedia
