Motorcycle Dynamics by Multibody Dynamics Analysis 951806
The purpose of this paper is to construct simulation models of a motorcycle with a rider by use of multibody dynamics analysis(MDA). Three types of MDA models are developed for evaluation of the effectiveness of MDA for motorcycle dynamics. Impulse responses with parameter study and Jane change maneuvers are calculated. The results of simulations agree with that of experiments well and effectiveness of MDA to the motorcylce dynamics field is shown.
