Deriving Car Slip Angles - Tire Slip - WARNING: Maths


Understanding oversteer, understeer, and load transfer all relates back to slip angles, so it's important to understand where the equation for slip angles comes from. This video derives the equation used for slip angles, as shown in the book "Automotive Engineering Fundamentals" by Richard Stone and Jeffrey K. Ball. The derivation of slip angles requires an understanding of basic dynamics, the relationship between slip angle and lateral load, and static free body diagrams of a car.
