Road Load Simulation of Two Wheeler by Simple Technique on Two Poster 978464
Various techniques have been developed for vehicle durability test in laboratory by using dedicated, sophisticated simulation software, specially developed rigs and vehicle holding fixtures. Such setups are expensive and complex.
A successful attempt was made to devise a simple, effective, economical, accelerated technique for fatigue evaluation of two wheeler on two poster, using simple vehicle holding fixture, dead weights and low end software for drive file generation.
Paper discusses the methodology adopted for road load data acquisition, analysis and simulation in laboratory. To judge the quality of simulation, comparison was made between acquired data in field (target data) and response data on rig from various angles.
The exercise enabled to generate quick drive file and compress the test span by about 25 times than the actual road test. The technique was very much useful for quick evaluation of chassis, body components, plastic panels etc. during developmental stages.
