Title: Dynamic study of velomobiles

This report shows a dynamical study of the velomobiles bicycle and tricycle during the conditions of braking and cornering. The values of the reaction on the wheels, the friction forces, and several other variables related to each case are calculated. Bicycles have a serious issue to handle during braking, they tend to turn over but they are more practical in cornering than the tricycles which have a major problem at this case where a small rise up of the wheels will lead to a loss of balance that cant be solved and leads to falling.
