Development of a Vehicle Model/Simulation Evaluation Tool 2008-01-0778

As part of the evaluation of vehicle simulation models, a vehicle dynamics engineer typically desires to compare simulation results to test data from actual vehicles and/or results from known, or higher fidelity simulations. Depending on the type of model, several types of tests and/or maneuvers may need to be compared. For military vehicles, there is the additional requirement to run specific types of maneuvers for vehicle model evaluations to ensure that the vehicle complies with procurement requirements. A thorough evaluation will run two different categories of tests/maneuvers. The first category consists of laboratory type tests that include weight distribution, kinematics and compliance, steering ratio, and other static measures. The second category consists of dynamic maneuvers that include handling, drive train, braking, ride, and obstacle types. In this paper, a process for proper evaluation of vehicle simulation models is presented. A method for evaluating simulation results from different simulation programs is also presented.
