ISO 7401 pdf download Road vehicles — Lateral transient response test methods — Open-loop test methods
1 Scope
This International Standard specifies open-loop test methods for determining the transient response behaviour of road vehicles. It is applicable to passenger cars, as defined in ISO 3833, and to light trucks.
NOTE The open-loop manoeuvres specified in this International Standard are not representative of normal driving conditions, but are nevertheless useful for obtaining measures of vehicle transient behaviour in response to several specific types of steering input under closely controlled test conditions. For measurements of steady-state properties, see ISO 4138.

5 Principle
5.1 General IMPORTANT — The method of data analysis in the frequency domain assumes that the vehicle has a linear response; this is unlikely to be the case over the whole range of lateral accelerations of interest.
The standard method of dealing with such a situation is to restrict the input to a sufficiently small range such that linear behaviour can be assumed. If necessary, testing can be performed with several ranges of inputs that, together, cover the entire range of interest. The primary object of these tests is to determine the transient response behaviour of a vehicle. Characteristic values and functions in the time and frequency domains are considered necessary for characterizing vehicle transient response.
Important characteristics in the time domain are:
a) time lags between steering-wheel angle, lateral acceleration and yaw velocity;
b) response times of lateral acceleration and yaw velocity (see 10.2.1 and 10.2.2);
c) lateral acceleration gain (lateral acceleration divided by steering-wheel angle);
d) yaw velocity gain (yaw velocity divided by steering-wheel angle); and
e) overshoot values (see 10.2.3).
These characteristics show correlation with subjective evaluation during road driving.
Important characteristics in the frequency domain are the frequency responses, i.e. amplitudes and phases of:
⎯ lateral acceleration related to steering-wheel angle; and
⎯ yaw velocity related to steering-wheel angle.
