Driving Cycle, Load and Fatigue Life Predictions Based on Measured Route Data 2001-01-3468

In order to shorten the length of time it takes to develop a vehicle, a system has been designed which combines actual measurements and simulation. Firstly, the route data is measured by a simple to use system. Based on this, a computer-simulation of a vehicle is carried out. It was found, that fuel consumption and driving characteristics can be predicted correctly.
Fatigue life estimation is much more complex, but in the hand of an experienced user a reliable comparison of different components is successful.
