- cornering coefficient
- the ratio of cornering stiffness of a straight free-rolling tire to the vertical load. Note: although the term cornering coefficient has been used in a number of technical papers, for consistency with definitions of other terms using the word coefficient, the term cornering stiffness coefficient is preferred.
