POSSIBILITIES FOR CONTROL OF SEMI-ACTIVE SHOCK ABSORBERS IN ORDER TO REDUCE CASES OF SUSPENSION JOUNCES WHEN BRAKING
- 1 Faculty of Transport, Technical University of Sofia, Bulgaria
In this work a model of a truck when braking is created. The model takes into account the deflections in the suspension and vibrations of the sprung mass. The differential equations of the model are worked out. Numerical experiments are performed and some results are given. It is shown that if the shock absorber damping ratio is increased when vehicle braking, it is possible to reduce the pitch angle and the jounces in the suspension.
