moments at contact patch and spindle

moments at contact patch and spindle

moments at contact patch and spindle

(OP)
hi guys this is an image of the rear wheel of a push bike going into a corner as well as what i think are relevant forces,
i need to calculate the moments or torque at A (the contact patch) and B (the hub centre)
this is to calculate the force on the left hand side of the frame and right hand side of the frame while in a corner
Fsr = the force going through the suspension
Fc = lateral cornering forcer on the rear wheel
phi = lean angle
MG = mass & gravity
t = the cross sectional radius of the tyre

i can and have calculated the above parameters through lot of prior equations that take into account the wheelbase, velocity, friction, radius of the turn ect. but i think that the above are the require ones to calculate this... if there is an easier way please let me know

im sure its quite simple really but i have either over thought it are just been daft

cheers for any help guys but could you please explain your reasoning behind your answer so that i can verify it please (not that i dont trust you ;) )

RE: moments at contact patch and spindle

shott92,

The image doesn't load. It says "unauthorized". Please fix that.

And I'm thinking that if you have calculated such forces before, you are likely over thinking it now.
