Calculation of vehicle behavior in traction and braking

Program TSIM in the GENSYS package can be used for studying braking and traction forces.

With the applied traction or braking force the vehicle will accelerate or retardate, and the longitudinal displacements of all masses in the vehicle with respect to the moving coordinate systems lsys will increase or decrease. To avoid too big longitudinal displacements between the vehicle and the moving coordinate systems the user has two possibilities to solve this problem:
