Linear

Linear tire model used to determine the forces and moments developed at the tire contact patch

The Linear tire model provides a linear relationship between the slip angle and longitudinal slip of the tire, and the lateral and longitudinal forces developed at the contact patch. The aligning moment, rolling resistance and overturning moment are assumed to be zero.

Note: The $\mathrm{hubFrame}$ port of the Linear tire model component  must be connected directly to the $\mathrm{hubFrame}$ port of a tire body component, as shown in the diagram below.
