Vertical Forces at the wheels for a bicycle (front wheel)

Though longitudinally stable when stationary, a bike may become longitudinally unstable under sufficient acceleration or deceleration. The normal ... more

Vertical Forces at the wheels for a bicycle (rear wheel)

Though longitudinally stable when stationary, a bike may become longitudinally unstable under sufficient acceleration or deceleration. The normal ... more

Radius of the turn of an upright bike (for small steering angles)

In order for a bike to turn, that is, change its direction of forward travel, the front wheel must aim approximately in the desired direction, as with any ... more

Radius of the turn of leaning bike (for small steering angles)

This lean of the bike decreases the actual radius of the turn proportionally to the cosine of the lean angle. The resulting radius can be approximated ... more

Horizontal Forces at the wheels for a bicycle (front wheel)

Though longitudinally stable when stationary, a bike may become longitudinally unstable under sufficient acceleration or deceleration. The horizontal ... more

Velocity in Frictionless Banked Turn

A banked turn (aka. banking turn) is a turn or change of direction in which the vehicle banks or inclines, usually towards the inside of the turn. For a ... more

Roll angular inertia (Automobile handling)

Automobile handling and vehicle handling are descriptions of the way wheeled vehicles perform transverse to their direction of motion, particularly during ... more

Horizontal Forces at the wheels for a bicycle (rear wheel)

Though longitudinally stable when stationary, a bike may become longitudinally unstable under sufficient acceleration or deceleration. The horizontal ... more

Wheel flop

Wheel flop refers to steering behavior in which a bicycle or motorcycle tends to turn more than expected due to the front wheel “flopping” over ... more

Tractive Force

As used in mechanical engineering, the term tractive force can either refer to the total traction a vehicle exerts on a surface, or the amount of the total ... more
