[Vittore Cossalter Motorcycle Dynamics BookZZ | Umar Riaz –

Consider for example the vehicle while it rounds a turn of 50 m with increasing velocity. If we consider that the center of pressure coincides with the center of gravity, the lift force is distributed equally between the two wheels in the motorcycle under consideration.

In this case as well, the intersection point of the resistance power curve with the useful power curve, in the highest gear, determines the maximum velocity that can be reached. Expert riders use the rear brake not only to decelerate the motorcycle but also to control the yaw motion.

An increase in inflation pressure, decreases the cornering stiffness coefficient and, to a lesser extent, decreases the camber stiffness coefficient. Some important geometric parameters can be expressed in terms of these variables: Saroj Neupane rated it it was amazing Dec 28, In this case the camber thrust is always inferior to the lateral force needed for equilibrium.

In this condition nearing the limit, the best riders are able to attain decelerations equal to 1. The front frame is always more tilted with respect to the rear frame when steering angle is other than zero same sign as roll angle.

It can be seen cozsalter the zero steering torque curve shifts towards lower values of the forward speed, and the resulting behavior is quite different from the reference case. It ranges from values of 75 to 90 mm in competition motorcycles to values of 90 to mm in touring and sport motorcycles, up to values of mm and beyond in dynamicss touring motorcycles. Forces acting on the motorcycle with zero sideslip angles.


To prevent a tire from slipping during braking, the value of the braking force applied to it must not exceed the product of the dynamic load acting on that tire times the local braking traction coefficient. When it reaches point Bthe elastic restoring shear stress, due to the deformation of the carcass and of the rubber elements in the tire tread, becomes greater than the adhesion forces and therefore become such as to make it deviate in the opposite direction, causing it to slide on the ground until the trailing edge C.

Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Let us examine the front frame: A motorcycle with suspension, from a dynamics point of view, can be considered as a rigid body connected to the wheels with elastic systems front dnamics rear suspension. The graph shows how the roll and steering angles vary in terms of the curvature. Motorcycle Dynamics offers a wealth of information compiled from the most up-to-date research into the behavior and performance of motorcycles.

Let us examine the rear frame: When the bicycle is tilted, the roll angle imposed determines the angle at which the handlebars naturally rotate. T therefore represents the period of external excitation of the motorcycle.

The driver is considered to be a rigid body firmly attached to the frame. Figure shows the normal trail as a function of the roll angle and the steering angle. The front sideslip angle is very small or even negative, while the rear sideslip angle increases Fig.

Rol e of the re ar brake i n s udde n s tops During curve entry the use of the rear brake can be quite useful. In fact, many motorcycle riders tend to forget the rear brake, which in certain circumstances provides a useful contribution. The book presents the theory of motorcycle dynamics. A good approximation of the lowering can be derived from the product of the pitch angle and the wheelbase. The resistance to forward motion is influenced in different ways by the various motorcycle components.

The roll angle necessary under various equilibrium conditions is represented by the intersection of the steering contour line with the roll line. If the sideslip angles were zero, the turn center point Co would be determined by the intersection of the lines perpendicular to the planes of the wheels and passing through the contact points.


Pravash rated it it was amazing Jul 19, The horizontal straight lines represent the equilibrium conditions of a motorcycle rounding turns of increasing radius, at constant velocity.

In reality the accelerations dynaimcs gradient of the curve are actually lower because of the time intervals needed to change gears, during which the useful driving force is zero. Theory and Application Reza N. If the aerodynamic force is included the driving force necessary for the equilibrium will increase. If we consider small roll, steering and sideslip angles the lateral forces acting on the wheels are equal to see Fig. The greater load on the front wheel improves braking but it also makes the forward flip-over more likely, which occurs when the rear wheel is completely unloaded.

Figure shows the variation of the rolling resistance coefficient versus the coasalter of velocity at certain values of tire pressure.

The various contributions have the following effect: The different behavior of the three motorcycles depends on the various sideslip angles of the tires required to generate the lateral forces that are necessary for equilibrium. The rear wheel may lift in gravity braking.

As soon as I got home, I managed to buy an old Guzzi Falcone The author and publisher are not responsible for any damage caused by the use of any information contained in this book. The rear brake is of little use on optimal roads and with high grip tires high coefficient of frictionbut becomes indispensable on slippery surfaces reduced coefficient of friction.
