Rolling resistance

Postby François » Tue Dec 13, 2016 8:15 am


I noticed there is a "Rolling resitance" tab in the "Road vehicle" tab of the "Object simulator inspector". In this tab there are 3 parameters that can be modified : f0, K1 and K2, but I didn't find any information about those parameters in the manuals.

Can you describe their function please or indicate where to find this information in the manuals ?

Thank you in advance for your feedback.

Best regards,

Dear François,

You can find the information you are interested in the Chapter 20 "UM COM Interfaces", Sect. 20.9.7 "Rolling resistance of tires" of UM manual.
We are going to add more detailed section on this subject in the Chapter 12 "Simulation of Road Vehicle Dynamics" in the nearest time.

Best regards,
