Interactive Computer Graphics for Vehicle Dynamic Analysis 820138
An interactive computer graphics program has been developed to help in vehicle design. The most important aspect is the use of a highly interactive interface between the user and the underlying analytical model. This allows for a closed loop design process and enhanced communication in both directions, both to and from the program. The paper discusses how the program helps the user visualize the many facets of vehicle behavior, how the user can easily change the parameters of the vehicle, and how dynamic transient response is simulated.
