Free-stream Mach number was taken as 0.75 for all computational runs while sideslip and angle of attack values vary between 0 and 5.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC) ensures the automatic correction of excessive steering, insufficient steering, sideslip and tail-swing under various driving conditions.
Our off-roading consisted of mud and steep hills with some sideslip. The vehicle managed to send power to the correct wheel so as not to be buried in wheel spin while the increased ride height helped over steep ruts.
Determination of the vehicle body sideslip angle [3] was also carried out for evaluation of vehicle stability and slip size.
Where [[delta].sub.f] / [[delta].sub.r] is the front/rear steering angle; [l.sub.f] /[l.sub.r] the distance from front/rear axle to the center of gravity; e the distance from the center of gravity of the sprung mass to the roll center; [F.sub.yf]/[F.sub.yr] the lateral tire force of front/rear tire; Mthe total mass of vehicle; [m.sub.s] the mass of roll body; [d.sub.[phi]] the roll damping coefficient; [k.sub.[phi]] the roll stiffness; [v.sub.x] the longitudinal velocity; [v.sub.y] the lateral velocity; r the yaw rate; [beta] the sideslip angle; [phi] the roll angle; [I.sub.x]/[I.sub.z] the vehicle moment of inertia with respect to x/z-axis; g the acceleration due to gravity.
Airgap eccentricity, roll angle, sideslip angle, and yaw rate responses at 100 km/h on class C road are shown in Figures 23-26.
where M is the moment, X, Y, and Z are the body forces, [V.sub.p] is velocity, S is parachute surface area, [F.sub.R] is the riser force (tension), [alpha] is attack angle, and [beta] is sideslip angle.
The ADS provides direct measurements of the aircraft true airspeed; typically connected with the ADS are the vanes for measuring the important aerodynamic angles known as angle of attack and angle of sideslip. Since the Pitot probes and [alpha]-[beta] vanes are installed on the fuselage and/or wings, they are exposed to external atmospheric agents; in general, these devices are robust to even extreme weather conditions.
