6��l�XV����h^�۝��o+���R�� ��� Braking in turn Directional stability Scrub radius : 2% . The scrub radius is the distance in front view between the king pin axis and the center of the contact patch of the wheel, where both would theoretically touch the road. The parameters obtained from this axis are described in an earlier post. It also reduces the risk, that a lose of traction on one front wheel during braking, causes the car to change direction. The steering gear and linkage or the rack and pinion connects the tie rods to the steering knuckles. I cringe when I see 3" wheel spacers and a set of deep dish wheels to get full width, without changing the axle. When viewing a wheel from front view, the scrub radius is the distance between where the extrapolated line of kingpin axis touches the road and the tyre contact patch centre point. Negative scrub also helps reduce torque steer in front wheel drive cars. Different wheels or endobj /Subtype /Image /Type /XObject *���m���k���u��r ��a���1|1�~�|*�,P���dz�a�W$��y�� Scrub radius basically refers to the distance between the tyre centre line and the point at which the Kingpin axis meets the ground in the front view. /Producer (PDF-XChange 4.0.181.0 \(Windows Seven Ultimate Professional Service Pack 1 \(Build 7601\)\)) The scrub radius is the distance in the front view between the point at which the kingpin would intersect with the ground and the center of the contact patch of the wheel where it intersects with the ground. The inclination of the KP axis in the side view is caster. to 0 cm of scrub radius in the blow-out case. This will affect how the tire contact patch interacts with the road during cornering, braking, and acceleration, and can cause unique toe characteristics depending on the design. x�| ��&��FD���Q�G�d������ x����i��3������m������x/���k���e�����`�_�t���P� )�d��y�Bי/����#̔U�י$���d������l7�� @�mH� 2) Which end of the spring is up?

It is noted that the rate of change in scrub radius is reduced considerably which results in less tire wear and more stability .

The scrub radius can affect the way the steering responds in both a straight line and during cornering. /Subtype /Image As with anything else, a little of a good thing is great, but lot of a good thing is not necessarily better. /Length 135 The apparatus includes a back-drivable steer-by-wire system including a road wheel actuator assembly coupled to a wheel of the vehicle. %���� 8 inch wide wheels & a slightly narrower slick cured this. !��H� $� Q�> �۠� �w�6!�܀J t���۷��q���~ ���]vQ�{�/ 9�� Keeping scrub radius small will make the car easier to handle at low speeds. Scrub radius : 10% . If the scrub radius is small then the contact patch is spun in place when parking, which takes a lot more effort. /BitsPerComponent 8 With a small amount of scrub radius, the tire is turned about the kingpin axis, slightly offset from the tire’s centerline. Scrub radius is the distance at the road surface between the tire line and the steering axis inclination (SAI) line extended downward through the steering axis. This creates a small tire/road friction resistance that in turn translates into feedback from the road. << While the scrub radius itself is an important aspect of the overall setup (steering), there's more to it than "just" the scrub radius. ��5��`]��_���%B[��Cq �ϊ����f8�;}K's��+��� �b ��]C\�" ������׉��1� �bNY,���[�6�� e�rGZ�6��k��ѧޥ�i�����#�^����L�2��輇 |�X��.7�T�~3j^e� ?�^_�"DžA{���A�ө�jp��3�����T��)��T����[��*�82�3s���'��� ����JbJ��+����32N�ũ?YLN�'���$wO{5X�����ȟn����P8���QY���).

Scrub Radius Scrub radius is the distance between where the SAI intersects the ground and the center of the tire. I remember a long time ago with manual steering cranking the wheel to full lock while stopped. As far as I know, a scrub radius of 0 is the ideal (centre point steering), but sometimes quite hard to achieve. !mZ�Ͷ��5�x:n�(�7�|:��X�s^�XH�0 ��-��)Va�t���8�S���n���O�b���n"!/��Ĩ� ��;Ho���u�c��g�"boN��UK�@�3�+F>пشW�6��IJ E��cH3�eD�:Ou�Ջ�+9�Zϒq��%�v��`!�6 ��i�^6~�&�wM?V�����H��S˸�o7��⺠޳��+�TɁ��(-n7J��j��9��k��r�02��3����|��|�s��4f�S �M�� Mq�1����L�w���2���2���]�6�CQ"��&?eΕ�W�P��TU&�ʹ�Dp Ζs�h8�`!��ӱ#G-a]�#^��o�L�σ�a0�,��C#���="�oQU}w�i�$=��� ��-ذ?+���æu��iʞ��n���敟)E�$\�{�o%�(q�y�j:���g?>{^�c�q7��@z�q����O�jn��b*i�U#��W 3�*%�I� U��Ҳ�.�v�_ϖz�S��"U��w��v�������lS z�����+&utR�� �t��G-9b5T�3v���4�릂%�:$wn{�h�� 6"mϙ��l8kd�Wd�%8���x`kѪX�`�SA�%�i�y����N'�-�͌�{� �29�R�)9�Dfт�M�,v6'� 9�?9ICD%b�g�:Ƣ 18 Time variation of steering assistance angle for different scrub radii 4.6 Simulation of Brake-in-turn Analysis to Study the Effect Scrub Radius In brake-in-turn analysis, the vehicle was made to run on the circular test track of 3.5 m radius with lateral acceleration of 0.35 g and then the brakes were applied. stream Later model Porsches deal with this by moving the hub away from the lower strut mount thus giving more room for greater backspaced wheels without increasing positive scrub radius. : +33 (0)4 50 02 34 34 Fax: +33 (0)4 50 68 58 93 Website: www.exxotest.com 11 00312458-v1 MT-TWINGO 1.2.3.

While included angle problems will affect the scrub radius, it is not the only thing that will affect it. proportional to the scrub radius, which will be felt by the driver at the steering wheel. Page 1 of 2 - SCRUB RADIUS. The system was made configurable also to function as a conventional power steering system, however preserving the normal torque characteristics, which then is analogous to 12 cm of scrub radius. The parameters obtained from this axis are described in an earlier post. << Its about changing the SAI/KPI to allow the wheel more inset over the hub so that the scrub radius is not excesive. scrub radius is produced when braking and steering is unstable.
