SCHEMATISATION THE STUDY PROCESS OF MULTIBODY ROAD VEHICLE MODELS DESCRIBING RIDE COMFORT – PART I. METHODS OF CLASSICAL MECHANICS
- 1 Faculty of Transport, Technical University of Sofia, Bulgaria
The objective of this study is investigation possibilities to obtain main parameters of road vehicle ride comfort using formal matrix approach. The automobile is modeled as a dynamic system made of masses interconnected by springs and dampers with linear characteristics. The procedure is applied about four to eight wheel models. The engine, transmission, passengers and loads are presented like a simple masses suspended on a single springs. In the paper are written the main principles of calculation procedure for formal modeling typical vehicle dynamic system.
