Simulation of Heavy Truck Ride Using a Desktop Computer 871557

This paper presents an overview of the development and application of a simulation model used for the study of tractor-semitrailer ride dynamics. The model incorporates system excitation from road roughness, nonlinear leaf spring characteristics, dynamic spring rate characteristics of air springs, and a first-order analysis model of frame flexure.
