Hypothetical Roll Centre / Anti Roll Question

Hypothetical Roll Centre / Anti Roll Question

Hypothetical Roll Centre / Anti Roll Question

At the moment, roll centre migration is static (ie linked inherently to geometry of suspension). Now imagine said suspension has flexible geometry at various stages of travel. The roll centres change (only by a small amount in this case, but change all the same). If roll centres were dynamic but said position was known (calculable) could applying a stabilising force equivalent to the difference between two roll centre instants (opposing wheels) correct for the imbalance in the roll centre location ie uneven moments?

I am trying to get an idea of what is achievable without giving the whole concept away ... Sorry please let me know if you need more explanation or happy to go Private Message as well ..

Appreciate your help ... !


RE: Hypothetical Roll Centre / Anti Roll Question

For a completely different 'purpose'/mitigating factor ;) Greg you are a bloody legend. Thanks for responding - I realise the active bar exists, but I would have it calibrated on a 3D map so to speak rather than planar due to a complete retake on flexible geometry, impacting RCH of each wheel independently.

You have helped me a lot passively over the past year through reading your considered responses. So, thank you. Hopefully now, it is possible.

More modelling now ;( but :)

RE: Hypothetical Roll Centre / Anti Roll Question

I am looking for some help understanding the effect spring rate has on lateral force at apex of corner for my teenage daughters 2900 pound 600 hp race car. I am not an engineer and I am new to the sport. I think we discovered something regarding spring rate split and track slope but I do not have the know how to engineer same
