Motion Simulations on a Motocrosser-Rider System 2004-32-0015

Full vehicle simulations with commercially available software are becoming powerful tools for evaluating motorcycles. Among various motorcycles, motocrossers are most affected by rider operations. We have developed a simulation system that consists of a motocrosser and rider operations. The simulations of three accelerating patterns and two typical jumping patterns have been conducted by using the rider operations that are measured by experiment. With the experimental results, soil-tire traction parameters are identified. The comparison of the simulations and experiments indicates this simulation system effectively analyzes motocrosser-rider systems.
