Tires and Vehicles
Blocks in the Simscape™ Driveline™ Tires and Vehicles library allow you to test the response of your driveline model under various and variable environmental conditions. You can also add fidelity to your model by specifying properties such as compliance, inertia, and rolling resistance for the tires and center of gravity and frontal area for the vehicle body.
Vehicle, Tires, and Road Profiles
|Longitudinal Vehicle||Longitudinal motion abstract vehicle with ideal brakes and tires|
|Road Profile||Road profile with varying elevation and friction properties|
|Tire (Friction Parameterized)||Tire with friction parameterized in terms of static and kinetic coefficients|
|Tire (Magic Formula)||Tire with longitudinal behavior given by Magic Formula coefficients|
|Tire (Simple)||No-slip tire model with minimal parameters|
|Vehicle Body||Two-axle vehicle with longitudinal dynamics and motion and adjustable mass, geometry, and drag properties|
