Aerial application, or what was formerly referred to as crop dusting, involves spraying crops with crop protection products from an agricultural aircraft.
Automobile handling and vehicle handling are descriptions of the way a wheeled vehicle responds and reacts to the inputs of a driver, as well as how it moves along a track or road.
A bush airplane is a general aviation aircraft used to provide both scheduled and unscheduled passenger and freight services to remote, undeveloped areas, such as the Canadian north or bush, Alaskan tundra, the African bush, or the Australian Outback.
Camber thrust and camber force are terms used to describe the force generated perpendicular to the direction of travel of a rolling tire due to its camber angle and finite contact patch.
θ is the caster angle, the red line is the pivot line, and the grey area is the tire. The caster angle or castor angle is the angular displacement of the steering axis from the vertical axis of a steered wheel in a car, motorcycle, bicycle or other vehicle, measured in the longitudinal direction.
Contact patch is the portion of a vehicle's tire that is in actual contact with the road surface.
Conventional landing gear, or tailwheel-type landing gear, is an aircraft undercarriage consisting of two main wheels forward of the center of gravity and a small wheel or skid to support the tail.
In automobiles, a double wishbone suspension is an independent suspension design using two (occasionally parallel) wishbone-shaped arms to locate the wheel.
The kingpin, also king-pin and king pin, is the main pivot in the steering mechanism of a car or other vehicle.
The MacPherson strut is a type of automotive suspension system that uses the top of a telescopic damper as the upper steering pivot.
In engineering, shear strength is the strength of a material or component against the type of yield or structural failure where the material or component fails in shear.
A spring is an elastic object that stores mechanical energy.
Steering is the collection of components, linkages, etc.
Suspension is the system of tires, tire air, springs, shock absorbers and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels and allows relative motion between the two.
A tire (American English) or tyre (British English; see spelling differences) is a ring-shaped component that surrounds a wheel's rim to transfer a vehicle's load from the axle through the wheel to the ground and to provide traction on the surface traveled over.
In automotive engineering, toe, also known as tracking, is the symmetric angle that each wheel makes with the longitudinal axis of the vehicle, as a function of static geometry, and kinematic and compliant effects.
For vehicles such as cars, vehicle dynamics is the study of how the vehicle will react to driver inputs on a given road.
A wheel is a circular component that is intended to rotate on an axle bearing.
