A passively suspended road vehicle rolls outwards under the influence of lateral acceleration when cornering, which is very dangerous under large lateral acceleration. In this paper, time lag between steering input and vehicle lateral acceleration response is systematically studied to implement the active roll control algorithm from the viewpoint of vehicle system dynamics. A 3 DOF yaw-roll vehicle model is established based on vehicle lateral, roll and yaw dynamics. Vehicle parameters of a 1997 Jeep Cherokee is used for parametric study, where the influences of vehicle velocity, steering frequency, mass, length, roll, yaw moment of inertia, position of vehicle centre of gravity, and tyre cornering stiffness are studied via numerical simulation. The analysis results will help improve the real time rollover warning/control algorithm design for vehicle safety. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
