Dynamics of a pickup truck undergoing a rear tire blowout are analyzed as a system controlled by a human driver. Analysis is based on a large nonlinear vehicle dynamics model combined with a human driver model. The main reason why some tire blowouts result in accidents is identified. Insight is generated in experiments with human drivers in a driving simulator that runs the same vehicle model as the one used for analysis. A driver assist system for controlling tire blowouts is developed and validated in real time in the driving simulator.
