Abstract

This study investigates a low degree of freedom towed wheel model, which takes into account the lateral deformation of the tyre. The lateral vibration of the towed wheel, also called shimmy, is described by a coupled integro differential equation and partial differential equation. This coupled system is analized by different analytical methods. The theoretical results are confirmed by numerical simulation and by experiments.
