Summary:
A spatial six-degree of freedom (DOF) mathematical model of a Three-Wheeled Vehicle (TWV) used extensively in Asian countries is developed. The governing equations are derived and integrated explicitly without liberalization to yield a large deformation model that can be used for parametric studies. The model includes suspension model, tire compliance, lateral force due to cornering stiffness and rolling resistance at the tire. The model is validated against vertical accelerations measured when passing over a road bump. The lateral motion is validated through a steady state circular test procedure.
