Modeling and Analysis of Longitudinal Tire Dynamics Based on the LuGre Friction Model

Proceedings of 3rd IFAC Workshop Advances in Automotive Control, pp. 101-106, Karlsruhe, Germany, 2001
A brush representation of the longitudinal tire dynamics model is discussed in the paper. It is shown that the dynamic tire model can be derived from any dynamic bearing friction model in a straightforward way. Several modifications of the recently published tire model based on the LuGre friction model are proposed, resulting in a consistent lumped form of the tire model. Based on the linearized lumped tire model, an analysis of the influence of tire dynamics on overall vehicle dynamics behavior is carried out.
