Dynamic behavior of the vehicle shimmy system with consideration of steering linkage clearance was analyzed. Based on nonlinear dynamic theories, a 4-DOF dynamic model of vehicle shimmy system with consideration of steering linkage clearance was presented. In which, the revolute movement pair of steering linkage with clearance between the steering tie rod and tie rod arm was described based on Hertz model. Numerical analysis on the dynamic response of the vehicle shimmy system with clearance was carried out, and the results were presented with phase plane, Poincaré map, and bifurcation diagram. The dynamic behavior of the vehicle shimmy system with clearance is compared with that without clearance, and the influence of the clearance on the dynamic behavior of the system is discussed, which will provide theoretical basis for attenuation of vehicle shimmy.
