Description
The Combined Slip Wheel STI block implements the longitudinal and lateral behavior of a wheel characterized by the Magic Formula^{1, 2} that complies with the standard tire interface (STI) Tyre Data Exchange Format (TYDEX)^{3} standard. You can import your own tire data or use fitted tire data sets provided by the Global Center for Automotive Performance Simulation (GCAPS). Use the block in driveline and vehicle simulations where lowfrequency tire road interactions are required to determine vehicle acceleration and wheelrolling resistance. The block is suitable for applications that require combined lateral slip, for example, in lateral motion and yaw stability studies.
Based on the wheel rotational velocity, longitudinal and lateral velocity, wheel camber angle, and inflation pressure, the block determines the vertical motion, forces, and moments in all six degrees of freedom (DOF). Use the vertical DOF to study tiresuspension resonances from road profiles or chassis motion.
Use the Tire type parameter to select the source of the tire data.
