Experimental and Theoretical Investigation into the Dynamics of a Half-Car with an Interconnected Passive Suspension 2009-01-0579

In this paper, a previously derived theoretical model of an integrated hydraulically interconnected suspension (HIS) half-car system is experimentally validated. The paper outlines the development of the HIS fluid system model and its integration into a four degree-of-freedom, roll-plane half-car system. An experimental approach to validate the model is outlined, and the resulting purpose-built half-car test facility is described in detail. Experimental results from both free and forced vibration testing are presented and compared with model-based simulations. In general, very good agreement is observed. Limitations of the testing approach and reasons for any discrepancies are discussed. Finally, the broader implications of the obtained results in terms of practical HIS system design are considered.
