Research and optimisation of the dynamic parameters of the QZSS embedded in the seat suspension system of the vehicles

A quasi zero-stiffness structure (QZSS) embedded to the seat suspension is proposed to improve the driver's ride quality. A dynamic model of the seat suspension added by the QZSS is established to analyse the effect of the QZSS's design parameters and geometrical ratios on the dimensionless restoring force and dimensionless dynamic stiffness of the system model. The QZSS's design parameters and geometrical ratios are then optimised via the genetic algorithm to obtain the quasi zero stiffness and minimum values of the seat's displacement and acceleration. The results show that the dimensionless restoring force and dimensionless dynamic stiffness are remarkably affected by the QZSS's design parameters. By optimising the QZSS's design parameters, the driver's ride comfort with the QZSS is greatly reduced in comparison to without the QZSS under the different simulation conditions. Therefore, the application of the QZSS optimised on the seat suspension can further improve the driver's ride quality.
