how can i find the wheel angle ( not the steering angle ) in PostProcessing in Adams/Car

hi everyone

I guess the subject asks the question by itself .

I can't find the wheel angle that is the result of the steering angle in Postprocessing .

I have looked everywhere in Postprocessing Results and I couldn't find it .

I have looked for a toe request but it gave the following result that I know is not correct because it should give a constant like steering angle:



appreciate it if anyone could help

RE: how can i find the wheel angle ( not the steering angle ) in PostProcessing in Adams/Car

As you say that is rubbish data. TUV is a bit of an oddball request, I don't use it. Is there any other request that gives toe? Mine's user defined and called Toe castor camber Front.

Cheers

hi GregLocock

I see absolutely no such request in here ? not in the requests nor in the components …

could you please mention the branch that you have found Toe castor camber in ?

I have looked everywhere ...

RE: how can i find the wheel angle ( not the steering angle ) in PostProcessing in Adams/Car

Sorry I don't use CAR. So try adding the following line wherever you add custom requests or adm code. You'll have to change the marker ids to whatever is correct in your model. You could look up usersub 1101 to figure out the syntax. the 10405/10421 pair define the left hand stub axle for example 5199 is the test equipment gyro position, attached to the body

sorry I need more elaboration on that …

maybe step by step …

I don't know where I should add custom request code so I could do the rest of the instructions that you just added …

appreciate it if you help out more

RE: how can i find the wheel angle ( not the steering angle ) in PostProcessing in Adams/Car

Sorry, i'm not a car user. That is, in the program I use, step by step, -we can write little bits of solver code directly into our models.

Cheers
