This paper presents results of analyses of a three-wheeled vehicle with the newly designed steering system. Our design of steering system is intended to be mounted on a tricycle with the electric drivetrain. The standard steering system of a three-wheeled vehicle has disadvantage, that such a vehicle is unstable, when it is curving a curve mainly at higher speeds. It results to a breach of stability form the overturning point of view. The newly designed steering system of a three-wheeled vehicle contributes to increasing its stability. It means that a three-wheeled vehicle with the newly designed steering system is able to pass a curve with a smaller radius at higher speed. The main objectives of analyses presented in this paper is comparison of driving properties of a three-wheeled vehicle with two wheels on a rear axle with the standard steering system and with the newly designed steering system by means of simulation computations, which were carried out in Simpack package.
Key words: three-wheeled vehicle / driving properties / overturning stability / simulation computations
