Folks,

Ok, I found more ebooks about vehicle dynamics from CRC press publisher.

Road Vehicle Dynamics: Fundamentals and Modeling with MATLAB® (2nd edition)
Driveline Systems of Ground Vehicles: Theory and Design
Dynamics of Wheel-Soil Systems: A Soil Stress and Deformation-Based Approach

I found three good ebooks (kindle) on Amazon. I purchased one of them. I plan to purchase others a week later.

Driveline Systems of Ground Vehicles book explains about vehicle with multi-axile streered wheels like SpaceX's mover for moving Starship and Booster to launch sites from build sites.
Dynamics of Wheel-Soil Systems book explain for rovers, off-road vehicles, etc.
Road Vehicle Dynamics book has excellent chapters for longitudual and lateral forces with using stiffness and damping.

I noticed that Orbiter source code has incomplete wheels dynamics routines in Vessel::AddSurfaceForce becuse it only implements linear rolling (no steering controls). and only designs for delta glider or spaceplanes on earth. I noticed that routine use 9.81 value means for earth gravity instead of mg value. It needs correction for simulating wheels per-planet gravity (mg from CelBody).
