Does anyone have good book about aircraft tire dynamics for landing/taking off and lateral (load) /longitudual (rolling) forces?

I checked Aircraft Design books but did not have any information about tire dynamics except in vehicle dynamics books (designed for cars).

Thanks,
Tim

Thanks for a link but it only mentions tire modeling, not dynamics. I now found good book called:

"The Science of Vehicle Dynamics" 2nd Edition.

That is available on Springer.com. I bought it with Back to School coupon (50% off discount). It will be 3rd edition coming out next year.

I found much useful information about lateral and longitudual forces with using stiffness factor, etc like in Vessel::AddSurfaceForce.

I believe that dynamics for car simulation can be applied to aircraft landing gears.
