tire axis system


tire axis system
the origin of the tire axis system is the center of tire contact. The x-axis is the intersection of the wheel plane and the road plane with a positive direction forward. The z-axis is perpendicular to the road plane with a positive direction downward. The y-axis is in the road plane, its direction being chosen to make the axis system orthogonal and right-hand.
