6DOF RTS Drive File Development Technique for Solid-Axle-Type Rear Suspensions Instrumented for 4DOF Applications 2005-01-0855

The MTS 329LT six degree-of-freedom road test simulator (6DOF RTS) provides additional controls for camber and steer moments resulting in more realistic simulation results compared with results for a 4DOF RTS. However, the 6DOF RTS requires that additional transducers be installed on the data acquisition vehicle to provide the road load information necessary to control these additional moments. Occasionally, road load data available for drive file development may not include the necessary information for controlling steer and camber moments (typically for 4DOF applications). Under such circumstances, it is still possible to develop drive files for solid-axle-type rear suspensions. A technique used to accomplish this task is presented in this paper.
