Synopsis of the Book:
The steering system is a critical
component of any vehicle, as it allows the driver to control the direction of
travel. The basic fundamentals of steering system engineering include the
Caster angle: The caster angle is the
angle between the steering axis and the vertical axis of the vehicle. It helps
to keep the vehicle stable when it is traveling in a straight line.
Toe angle: The toe angle is the angle
between the front wheels when viewed from the front of the vehicle. It helps to
ensure that the tires are aligned properly and that the vehicle tracks
Thrust angle: The thrust angle is the
angle between the centerline of the vehicle and an imaginary line drawn
perpendicular to the rear axle centerline. It helps to keep the vehicle stable
when it is traveling in a straight line and also helps to improve the vehicle's
ability to turn corners.
The steering system is a complex
system, but it is essential for safe and efficient driving. By understanding
the basic fundamentals of steering system engineering, drivers can help to keep
themselves and their passengers safe on the road.
In addition to the basic fundamentals
mentioned above, there are a number of other factors that can affect the
steering system, such as the type of tires that are used, vehicle's weight and
condition of the road. Drivers should be aware of these factors and take steps
to ensure that their steering system is properly maintained.
