Power Translations for Deterrence or Stimulation of Wheelie/Wheel-stand for a Straight Moving Vehicle
Mechanical Engineering Department, Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology, India
The objective of this paper is to identify and study various factors which induce the possibility of wheelie/wheel-stand of a rear wheel drive vehicle. The purpose is to assist race and stunt drivers with a mathematical indicator (M) which could predict if a vehicle will undergo a wheel-stand or not, and if it will, what are the safe limits to avoid rollover and loss of control. The principle idea behind this research is that during a wheelie, the total power [P] supplied by an engine is utilized in uplifting [P1] and manoeuvring [P2] of the vehicle. After determining the coordinates of centre of gravity of the vehicle, P1 and P2 are calculated and on the basis of these values, factor of power translation [M] is calculated.
