Dynamic model of a logistic train with different steering systems and tire models
Latin American Journal of Solids and Structures
Logistic train is one of the recent solutions applied in the intralogistics. It bases on the concept of the "milkrun" delivery method. The main problem in the implementation of intralogistics trains is the possibility to determine whether the train is able to pass the given path without a colliding with surrounding objects. Dynamic model presented in this paper was performed for the three most common steering systems for the trolleys: double Ackermann steering system and two drawbar systems:
... drawbar systems: conventional and virtual clutch. The dynamic model was developed following Lagrange's theorem including the possibility of lateral slip. The system of differential equations was numerically solved. In order to calculate the lateral friction forces we used three different tire models: simplified, sigmoidal and Pacejka Magic formula. The results obtained for different tire models and steering systems are presented in the form of animations presenting train run in various conditions. The analyses have shown that the use of simplified tire models is justified under certain conditions.
