The Wheel Force brake table option calculates brake torque as the product of the
user-entered wheel force and the current tire radius (the larger of the tire
radii in the case of dual tires). These are explained in the SIMON User Manual,
page 4-25. BUT... As noted on page 4-25
and in various technical articles, EDC recommends the use of the "Pedal Force" option and discourages use of the “Wheel
Force” and “% Available Friction” options. The
reason for this is that SIMON has a very sophisticated braking system
that is completely by-passed by the "Wheel
Force" and "% Available Friction" options. Among other things, if you use any input option other then 'Pedal Force,'
proportioning has no effect and ABS is
not possible.
