Overview of Advanced Road Simulation Techniques 740946

Many techniques are currently being used for different types of road simulation studies. These approaches vary from using a road simulator as an analysis tool for fatigue to durability simulation to predict the life of a complete vehicle in the laboratory. Different inputs to vehicles have been used, from the apparent straightforward approach of vertical inputs through the tire to complete simulation of combined loads through multiple inputs into the vehicle.
An overview of these techniques developed over the past decade is presented. The analysis relates to the techniques and application of test equipment and methods of testing rather than the prediction or classification of actual results.
