Tire

Linear and Magic Formula tire model component

Note:  This component is used with the Longitudinal Vehicle Dynamics component.

 

 

The Tire component models the longitudinal dynamics of a two tires together with the wheels and axle. The tire longitudinal forces are modeled either by a linear formulation (with saturation) or by the Magic formula. Wheel/axle inertia is included but no compliance is considered.

 

Equations

The tire translation and rotation velocities are given as

 

vx = ⅆⅆ tsx 

 

ω = ⅆⅆ tϕ  ,    α = ⅆⅆ tω 

 

 

Where  sx  is the tire translation along the road and ϕ  is the tire rotation.

 

The equation of motion is

 

 

J · α  = τ  f · r

 

Where  J  is the tire inertia, τ  is the axle torque,  f  is the traction/brake force, and r  is the tire radius.    

 

The slip ratio is approximated by

 

 

k = r · ω  vxmax  r · ω, vx, ϵv

 

   

Where  ϵv  is a small positive number added to avoid singularity.

 

The tire contact force, f, is calculated as

 

 

 

 

 

f  &equals;  &lcub;0               fz <0 &lcub;fz · Fx0Fz0 · kk0k< k0 fz · Fx0Fz0 · kkk k0            formulation &equals; Linear K·fz · D · sinC · tan1B · k  E · &lpar;B · k  tan1B · k&rpar;&plus;Sv                formulation &equals; Magic

 

where parameters K and Sv are added to the standard Magic formula to adjust the tire force and facilitate fixed step integration, respectively. Also,

 

fx &plus; f &equals; 0
