Based on the ADAMS software, we established a whole vehicle model to study its handling stability. It includes the front suspension system, the rear suspension system, the steering system and four wheels. After the simulation trials, we analyze the vehicle speed, the steering radius and the yaw angular velocity. The influence of steering wheel angle on the vehicle speed is not big, but the influence on the steering radius and the yaw angular velocity is obvious. The results accord with the actual steering motion and can be a reference for researchers on the study of handling stability.
