Hi,

I have these equations which represent the car steering angles and velocity. These equations were obtained from a car simulation model. They are used for continuous turning motion. However, I could not understand how do they operate or what model do they represent. I would like some hints if any body is familiar with them or have any other similar equations or references:

PSI=arcsin( (v/d)*sin(Tyre Angle) );
course=Beta+PSI;
Gamma=Tyre Angle+course;

B=L*cos(Beta)+v*cos(Gamma)-L*cos(course);
C=cos(course);

rear velocity=B/C;

where
L : length between tyres.
Beta: is the slip angle( car angle)
PSI:is the angle below of Beta

Could you provide a drawing of what the angles, velocities and lenghts represent ?

I could provide you with basic rack and pinion theory.
