Analysis of longitudinal Motion of the Rider/Motorcycle System, e. g., Jumping over an Obstacle 840247

The dynamic behavior of the rider/motorcycle system, affected by the change of rider's posture in jumping over an obstacle, was analyzed by solving the equations of motion.The rider's behavior and motions were obtained from full scale experiments. These were combined with dynamic equations of motion for the motorcycle. The result was used to evaluate the rider's mastery of the accomplishment of the movement. To compare with the real motion obtained with a high speed camera, the computed motion was visualized as a time sequence.The comparison between the experiment and the computation showed good agreement.
