Abstract:
Taking a domestic brand car as example, this paper is about how to find out a three-point nonlinear stiffness characteristic curve which can meet the requirements of variable stiffness and three-load condition.The new coil spring gives the passive suspension a lot of improvements in riding and safety, changing the nonlinear stiffness characteristic from weak to strong.This paper summarizes the optimization design method for the rear suspension coil spring, which includes the fitting of ideal stiffness characteristic curve, quantitative method for figuring out how the change of vehicle load influences the load on rear suspension axle, the design method of variable stiffness coil spring which corresponds to the change of vehicle load. A new kind of modified ideal point solution for building the objective function was also put forward.Using the kits Fminimax, Fmincon in Matlab as optimization tools, finally verify the validity of optimization result through the four post testing module in ADAMS/Car.
