Abstract

Steering system is used to steer the front wheels in response to driver inputs in order to provide overall directional control of the vehicle. Thus, Steering system plays very important role in vehicle handling characteristics. Vehicle drift i.e. deviation of vehicle path from straight line during braking is related various parameters of Suspension, Steering, Tires, Wheel alignment etc. Analysis of steering characteristics such as Brake and bump steer which affects vehicle drift plays an important role. Modeling and analysis of vehicle have been performed in a multi body dynamics environment based on actual vehicle data for Bump and Brake Steer. Different steering linkage concepts have been proposed to reduce brake and bump steer. Further optimization of hard points is done to reduce bump and brake steer within packaging constraints. It is found out that drag link ball joint position plays an important role in brake and bump steer.
