Abstract: Magic Formula model is actually used in a context that assumes zero longitudinal slip during pure cornering. In such condition, the model does not propose any expression for longitudinal force since it is neglected. However, a recent prior study has physically described the tyre tread displacement in the longitudinal direction during pure cornering. In this paper, a method for determining longitudinal slip during pure cornering is proposed. Then, this longitudinal slip is used as an input variable for Magic Formula in order to represent the corresponding longitudinal force. The modelling results are compared with measurements data.
