Abstract:
Multi-body simulations are very powerful tools in the modeling of dynamic mechanical systems. This study uses the multi-body simulation program ADAMS to analyze a light vehicle suspension. The paper introduces ADAMS modeling concepts and then applies them in a case study examining the effects of additional longitudinal compliance on the ride and handling behavior of a 1/4 car suspension model. The results were a marginal increase in the lateral stiffness of the vehicle, approximately the same ride performance, and an increase in the compliance steering angle.
