Factors influencing the dynamic response of protective structures within heavy-duty vehicles in complex transportation conditions

This paper develops a simulated dynamics model focused on the vibration coupling between a heavy-duty vehicle and the protective structure of the payload and verifies it through field experiments, which monitor the dynamic response under complex driving conditions such as uneven surfaces, turning, deceleration, and excessive gradients in real time. Compared with the results of the experiments and the simulations (with numerical methods), it can be found that the model can accurately estimate dynamic response of protective structures. The maximum acceleration at the bottom of the protective structure becomes larger as the amplitude of the road surface roughness increases. Furthermore, when the vehicle turns, the vibration of the protective structure increases sharply with braking, and when the vehicle begins decelerating, the lateral acceleration of the freight increases significantly in the first few seconds. In addition, the maximum acceleration at the bottom of the protective structure increases with the increase in speed when the heavy-duty vehicle is driving on a gradient, but that increase is small when the speed exceeds 80 km/h.
