A Simple and Efficient Description of Car Body Movements for Use in Virtual Prototyping and Ride Comfort Evaluation 2000-01-1629

Ideally, ride comfort evaluation, or any field evaluating human perception of motion, would be greatly simplified if such evaluation could be made based upon a single number or a simple curve that correlates with the perception of motion.
The paper describes a ride comfort descriptor of pitch movements that is simple to use in virtual prototyping and ride comfort evaluations. This descriptor, i.e. Pitch Indicator, is validated in a calculation model, ride comfort measurements and subjective evaluations.
