Bicycle And Motorcycle Dynamics - Lateral Dynamics - Lateral Motion Theory - Equations of Motion
... linearized ordinary differential equation or two coupled second-order differential equations, the lean equation and the steer equation where is the ... that include the gravitational constant and and is symmetric in and asymmetric in , is a vector of lean angle and steer angle, and is a vector of external forces, the moments mentioned above ... many geometric parameters (wheelbase, head angle, mass of each body, wheel radius, etc.), but only four significant variables lean angle, lean rate, steer angle, and steer rate ...
Bicycle And Motorcycle Dynamics - Lateral Dynamics - Turning - Leaning
... However, unlike other wheeled vehicles, bikes must also lean during a turn to balance the relevant forces gravitational, inertial, frictional, and ground support ... The angle of lean, θ, can easily be calculated using the laws of circular motion where v is the forward speed, r is the radius of the turn and g is the acceleration of gravity ... A slight increase in the lean angle may be required on motorcycles to compensate for the width of modern tires at the same forward speed and turn radius ...

Famous quotes containing the words angle and/or lean:

    So much symmetry!
    Like the pale angle of time
    And eternity.
    The great shape labored and fell.
    N. Scott Momaday (b. 1934)

    Laws, like houses, lean on one another.
    Edmund Burke (1729–1797)
