Torque acting on Steering Arm Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Mt = Ff*rs
This formula uses 2 Variables
Variables Used
Frictional Force - Frictional Force is the force that opposes the tyre rubber from sliding on the road surface. (Measured in Newton)
Scrub Radius - Scrub Radius is the distance in front view between the king pin axis and the center of the contact patch of the wheel, where both would theoretically touch the road. (Measured in Millimeter)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Frictional Force: 300 Newton --> 300 Newton No Conversion Required
Scrub Radius: 20 Millimeter --> 0.02 Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Mt = Ff*rs --> 300*0.02
Evaluating ... ...
Mt = 6
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
6 Newton Meter --> No Conversion Required
6 Newton Meter <-- Torque

Mt = Ff*rs

Which increases the torque in the steering system?

In the case of constant vehicle speed, as the steering wheel angle increases, the steering torque should increase to ensure the steering feel; when the angular speed of the steering wheel is large, it means that the direction of the vehicle is changing rapidly, and the steering torque should be appropriately increased.

How to Calculate Torque acting on Steering Arm?

Torque acting on Steering Arm calculator uses Torque = Frictional Force*Scrub Radius to calculate the Torque, The Torque acting on Steering Arm is defined as torque steer, the unintended influence of engine torque on the steering, especially in front-wheel-drive vehicles. Torque is denoted by Mt symbol.

How to calculate Torque acting on Steering Arm using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Torque acting on Steering Arm, enter Frictional Force (Ff) & Scrub Radius (rs) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Torque acting on Steering Arm calculation can be explained with given input values -> 6 = 300*0.02.
