This thesis is concerned with the problem of measuring and quantifying the transient response of automobiles to steering and side wind inputs. The overall strategy is to use a control theory approach, and describe the various responses in terms of transfer functions and the parameters which define these transfer functions. The work is a continuation of the author's earlier work in the same field, and the starting point is that the steer frequency response of three vehicles had been measured using a sinusoidal steer input device, but analysis of the results had not been undertaken. The historical background is reviewed briefly.
