A METHODOLOGY FOR MEASUREMENT OF VEHICLE PARAMETERS USED IN DYNAMIC STUDIES

An experimental system has been developed to facilitate the measurement of vehicle parameters required in dynamic studies of the automobile. This report describes the measuring facilities comprising, basically, a configuration of air bearings. System requirements are outlined based on the methodology adopted for studies involving the vehicle-occupant-terrain-obstacle system. Several procedures and techniques used to measure vehicle suspension and inertial characteristics are also outlined. System performance is illustrated by typical measurements made on a vehicle used in a program of studies directed towards the development of a validated model of the highway cable barrier for parametric studies of vehicle redirection using digital simulation.
