Reaction Forces under Static Loading of a Wheel Pair with Camber / G. V. Gusak. // Vestnik Moskovskogo Universiteta. Seriya 1. Matematika. Mekhanika. 2018. № 4. P. 40-47 [Moscow Univ. Mech. Bulletin. Vol. 72, N 2, 2017. P. 84-90].

The static loading of a wheel pair with a deformable periphery is considered when the wheels are mounted on a common axle with a non-zero camber angle. A tire tread (protector) is modeled by a set of elastic rods interacting with the motion plane according to the dry friction law. The wheel camber effect on the slip in the contact zone and on the magnitude of reaction forces from the road is studied. An analog of the continuous model for a rod tread is discussed. The normal and tangential reaction forces are found depending on the vertical displacement of the center of the mechanical system under discussion.

Key words: mechanical wheel model, rod protector, wheel pair, camber angle, slip, reaction forces, contact patch.
