The Influence of Damper Properties on Vehicle Dynamic Behaviour 2002-01-0319

This paper details a non-linear hysteretic physical shock absorber model, and the processes utilised to identify the constituent parameters. In the current paper the model parameters are extracted from experimental data for the ‘sport’ setting of a prototype front shock absorber for a vehicle in the luxury class. The model is validated by comparing simulated results to experimental data for a test damper, for three discrete frequencies of sinusoidal excitation of 1,3 and 12 Hz. Finally the shock absorber model is included in a quarter car vehicle ride model and output characteristics are compared to those obtained with classical damper representations.
