Reduction of Vibration in Tractor Using Semi-Active Suspension 2002-01-1469

Recently, the development stage of agricultural vehicles such as the tractor has focused on new demands to improve the cabin environment. Especially the ride comfort has become increasingly important. For this purpose, rubber bushes have been installed the tractor to reduce road vibration to the driver in the cabin. However, this device does not sufficiently suppress vibration.
This paper presents a method of vibration reduction that installs a semi-active suspension in the lateral and vertical directions at the cabin mount position of the tractor. In numerical simulation, the tractor model installed with a semi-active suspension is superior in performance to the conventional tractor model.
