Front suspension LCA bushing optimization 2010-36-0248
When considering ride comfort and precision there are lots of
components in the vehicle suspensions that have influence in this
behavior and some ride occurrences (mainly higher frequencies) are
rubber bushing responsibility but due their compliance, other
vehicle attributes, steering and handling, can be affected. So the
correct components tuning can maintain or improve vehicle
attributes to address desired brand DNA and vehicle its specific
needs. These studies were done considering the elastokinematics of
front axle only due need of improve its comfort concerning higher
frequencies (impacts and harshness).
In addiction, correlation between subjective evaluation and
objective data acquisition/post processing is desirable to optimize
development time. Based in subjective directional, the activities
time was reduced and final configuration reached faster.
