In this paper, we present an iterative approach for analyzing the steady state handling behavior of a two-axled vehicle. This approach computes lateral forces iteratively from two separate submodels. The first submodel is an appropriate tire model that computes per wheel lateral forces as functions of slip angles, from formulations preferably expressed in a non-dimensional format. The second is a lateral weight transfer submodel that computes per-axle lateral force contributions for a given lateral acceleration. The combination then allows for the estimation of the required steer angles for the prevailing lateral acceleration. Subsequent corrections are then applied to take into account steer effects such as roll steer, lateral force compliance steer and aligning moment compliance steer. The usefulness of the approach is demonstrated by comparing simulation results with test data for a small passenger car.
