Application of Road Load Prediction Technique for Suspension Durability Input Condition 2014-01-0863
The aim discussed in this paper is to show a technique to predict loads input to the wheels, essential to determining input conditions for evaluation of suspension durability, by means of full vehicle simulations using multi body analysis software Adams/Car.
In this process, model environments were built to enable reproduction of driving modes, and a method of reproducing the set-up conditions of a durability test vehicle was developed.
As the result of verification of the accuracy of the simulations in the target driving modes, good correlation for waveforms can be confirmed. And also confirm a good correlation in relation to changes of input load due to changes in suspension specifications.
