Vehicle dynamics model for simulation on a microcomputer
by R.M. Brach
International Journal of Vehicle Design (IJVD), Vol. 12, No. 4, 1991

Abstract: Equations of motion are derived for a two-axle, two-wheeled vehicle pulling a one-axle, two-wheeled trailer. Linear and nonlinear tyre side force models are discussed. Examples of computer solutions of the equations are presented for both single vehicle motion and articulated vehicle motion. A comparison of tractor semitrailer manoeuvres with a more elaborate simulation shows excellent results.
