Hydraulically Interconnected Suspension Parameter Sensitivity in Half-Car Ride Performance 2007-01-0583
In this paper, the development of a hydraulically interconnected suspension (HIS) system model and the integration of this model into a four degree-of-freedom half-car system is briefly introduced. The appropriate frequency response functions are derived in order to simulate the system response to a stochastic road profile. The sprung mass vertical and roll accelerations, the dynamic normal tyre force, and the suspension deflection are considered in the frequency domain up to 20 Hz. Four key hydraulic system parameters are identified and investigated to gauge their effects on the system's dynamic performance. The results indicate that HIS system performance can be greatly affected by these hydraulic parameters.
