which can be described, for linear axle characteristics, as

Fy=Yβ·β=(Cα1+Cα2)·β

The value of xNS follows from equilibrium of moments around the vehicle CoG:

xNS=a·Fy1(β)b·Fy2(β)Fy1(β)+Fy2(β)

In case of linear axle characteristics,

xNS=a·Cα1b·Cα2Cα1+Cα2=NβYβ (5.43)

Let us investigate what occurs for linear axles if the neutral steer point ...
