Adjustment of corners of installation of wheels

For the best understanding of the separate basic concepts at adjustment of wheels these illustrations are given.

For achievement of reliable controllability of the car forward wheels have to stand under certain corners in the vertical and horizontal plane. In order that you could have a clear view the concept "ratio of angles of rotation of the operated wheels", we give an explanation of some concepts:

Convergence: at Audi 80 forward wheels at rest in front stand slightly more closely to each other, than behind. In these cases speak: convergence "positive". The friction between a wheel and the road wrings out the left wheel on the left, and right to the right. It is compensated by the forces arising in the forward drive, seeking to squeeze forward wheels in front. At entry of the car into turn the positive convergence passes into a negative convergence (divergence) of wheels. It occurs thanks to a trapezoid arrangement of steering drafts: the internal wheel in turn bends more strongly than the external. It is necessary because on turn internal wheels describe narrower circle, than external.

Disorder: so call an easy inclination in forward wheels – at Audi 80 in a wheel niche above they are located more closely to each other, than below. In language of experts it is called as "negative disorder".

Cross inclination shkvornya: it treats disorder. The cross inclination shkvornya is an insignificant inclination of a rotary axis round which at management of a wheel and all rack turns. Both rotary axes are above located more closely to each other, than below. Disorder and a cross inclination shkvornya in addition prevent trembling of wheels and facilitate their provorachivaniye.

Longitudinal inclination shkvornya back: it is necessary to understand the inclined provision of a rotary axis in the longitudinal direction of the car as it. It also helps to stabilize the rectilinear movement on inertia and to prevent vibration of wheels. Besides, thanks to a longitudinal inclination there is a return of a steering after turns.
