CASTORING stability requires automatic return, after displacement, of the castoring wheel to the central position. A hinged wheel may be automatically stable under static conditions, but dynamically unstable, or vice versa. Dynamic stability may be defined as the condition in which the forces on the wheel in motion secure its return to the path of direction of motion.
