1. INTRODUCTION
The transmission system plays an important role in the overall performance of vehicle.
Especially, it has a significant influence on the dynamical characteristic, fuel consumption
and stability of the vehicle [14,16]. So far, there have been a number of publications related to
transmission system [13-16]. However, these works mainly focus on studying dynamic loads
appearing in transmission system [13,15,16] or investigating characteristics of acceleration
[1,2], the fuel consumption of vehicles with different powertrain structures [1,2,6,10].
Literature [1-16] showed very few published works that are concerned with the influence of
transmission layout on the stability of vehicles.
In actual working conditions, the lateral force acting on the tires produces a side slip
angle that affects the directional stability of vehicle [1,2,6,9,12]. Lateral forces can be caused
by many factors such as the impact of side wind, uphill, cornering... The main purpose of this
study is to investigate the influence of the location of driving axle on the lateral force acting
on the wheels of the vehicle with 4x2 wheel formula while cornering [4,5,9,11].

the moment of turning resistance; Mjz is the yaw moment. These can be expressed as:

2.2. Forces and moments acting on the vehicle while cornering
External forces in the x direction. The external force Fx in the direction x is [1,10]:
Fx=Fi + Fw =m.sin + K.F.v

x0 (8)
where: Fi is the climbing resistance; Fw is the aerodynamic drag force; is the the angle
of uphill gradient; Cd denotes the aerodynamic drag coefficient, ρ is the air density and A is
the cross sectional area.
Turning resistance moment Mz. During cornering of vehicle, the turning resistance
moment Mz is generated by the difference of torque at the left and right of driving wheels.
This value depends on the locking coefficient of the differential between the wheels, which is
determined by the equation [9]:

Mk – total torque, supplied to both wheels of driving axle.

Centrifugal forces and yaw moment. In order to determine the centifugutial forces Pjx, Pjy
and yaw moment Mjz we have to determine normal and tangential accelerations jx, jy and εz.

where: JN(DO), JT(DO): normal and tangential acceleration of point D relative to point O,

respectively.

Where: δ1, δ2 slip angles of the front- and rear wheels; Rδ - turning radius.

3. RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS
For illustration we show the results of calculating the influence of driving axle location on
lateral forces while vehicle cornering with the aid of Matlab-Simulink 2018 software.
Parameters for the model are chosen as: m=1290 (kg); a=1.19(m); b=1.37(m); B=1.5(m);

);kd=0.05;f=0.02.
The results of calculation of lateral forces generated in the front axle (Ry1f, Ry1r) and rear
axle (Ry2f, Ry2r) of FWD and RWD vehicles while cornering are presented in Figures 4 – 8.
Figure 4. The lateral force vs velocity for FWD and RWD vehicle with 4x2 wheel formula
From the graph in Figure 4 it can be seen that the lateral forces in the rear wheels are
relatively similar for both RWD and FWD layouts (Ry2f= Ry2r). However, the lateral force
generated in the front wheel is markedly different in two cases, in which the lateral force
acting on front wheel of FWD is smaller than that in RWD vehicle (Ry1f<Ry1r).
The analysis of results in Figures 5 and 6 also shows that the values of the lateral forces in
both layouts of driving axle depend strongly on the two factors: velocity and the steering
angle of front wheel. In the same cornering condition of vehicle, the greater the automobile
velocity grows, the greater the lateral force is generated. Also, the greater the steering angle θ,
the greater the lateral force acting on the wheels. This can be explained as follows: the lateral
forces value generated while vehicle cornering is strongly depend on the centrifugal forces
Fjx, Fjy and moment Mjz, especially the centrifugal forces Fjy in y direction; according to
equations (18) and (19), these forces and moment are directly proportional to the value of

velocity Vx and rotation angle θ. Therefore, when the speed Vx or the steering angle θ of front
wheel of cornering vehicle increases, the value of lateral forces acting on the wheels grows.

velocities
Figure 7. The lateral forces vs velocity of RWD
vehicle with θ=0,2 rad
Figure 8.The lateral forces vs velocity of FWD
vehicle with θ=0,6 rad
In addition, when comparing the lateral force acting on the wheels of both case front
wheel drive and rear wheel drive vehicles (Figure 7 and 8), it is shown that the lateral force
acting on the front wheel is always greater than the lateral forces acting on the rear wheel.

This result is due to, beside the effect of centrifugal forces and yaw moment. Since the front
wheel also has functions of a steering wheel, it bears an additional lateral force generated by
steering angle θ.
4. CONCLUSIONS
This study presented a model for calculating the lateral forces acting at the wheels of FWD
and RWD vehicles with 4x2 wheel formula when cornering. The main conclusions are:
(i) The lateral force acting on the wheel depends on many factors, of which the most
important factors are the velocity of vehicle and the steering angle of the steering wheel;
(ii) For both FWD and RWD vehicles, the lateral forces acting on front wheel are always of
greater than those of rear wheel;
(iii) The value of lateral force acting on front wheel of FWD vehicle is smaller than the RWD
vehicle with 4x2 wheel formula. In other words, in the same cornering condition, FWD
vehicle has better directional stability than RWD vehicle.
