Effective Use of Multibody Dynamics Simulation in Vehicle Suspension System Development 2004-01-1547
Multibody Dynamics Simulation (MDS) studies are valuable in providing guidance in suspension systems design and reduce product development cost and time. These studies are used in various stages of suspension system design and development. In both concept study and detailed design the subsystem kinematics, dynamics and full vehicle dynamics studies are used. In this paper, four case studies for suspension system performance optimization using MDS studies are presented.
