# What is sideslip angle aircraft?

• Andrew Lim
Sideslip angle

The sideslip angle, also called angle of sideslip (AOS, AoS, , Greek letter beta), is a term used in fluid dynamics and aerodynamics and aviation. It relates to the rotation of the aircraft centerline from the relative wind.
• ### What is slip angle What are the causes of slip angle?

Causes. A non-zero slip angle arises because of deformation in the tire carcass and tread. As the tire rotates, the friction between the contact patch and the road results in individual tread 'elements' (finite sections of tread) remaining stationary with respect to the road.

• ### How much camber do normal cars have?

0 to 2 degrees negative
Typical camber on modern vehicles is from 0 to 2 degrees negative (in at the top), while many classic cars (50's to 70's) used 0 to 1 degree positive camber (out at the top). Camber can cause a pull, but it doesn't do it by being extremely negative or positive, but by being different from side to side.
• ### How do you understeer?

How to correct understeer
1. Reducing tyre pressure or using softer tyres at the front of the car.
2. Softening the anti-roll bar or front springs.
3. If aerodynamics are fitted, increasing the front downforce.

• ### What is longitudinal and lateral acceleration?

Longitudinal acceleration refers to acceleration in a straight line, with a positive value to indicate what we normally call acceleration and a negative value for braking. Lateral acceleration is an effective measure of cornering performance and what automotive people test on a skidpad.5 abr 2012
