The vehicle planar single track dynamic model with two input steering angle parameters is derived by using Lagrange's method with the basis of equations for calculating the tire's force components. Dynamic analysis of a heavy articulated vehicle in case of turing is carried out by the vehicle planar dynamic model, in which two input steering angles are taken into account. Simulation with the selected velocity value to make sure that the stability according to the friction conditions at all axles of the vehicle is satisfied. Turning spacing, lateral forces at each axle of the vehicle are determined and analyzed for all three different cases of steering angles, respectively with steering angle of the semi-trailer is in the same direction, in the opposite direction and is locked or not steered in comparision with the steering angle of the tractor. The obtained results show that the derived model could employ to determine the planar kinematic and dynamic parameters, and analyze the dynamic safety features of an articulated vehicle, too. In addition, the derived mathematical model could also employ to develop a computational model that controls the planar articulated vehicle dynamics.
