Golden Section Search Based Optimization of Road Vehicle Suspension System

Suspension system is an important part of a vehicle which connects the road wheels and vehicle body. The major function of suspension is to isolate vehicle body from road disturbances. The design of suspension system is generally a compromise between many design requirements that aim to provide a comfortable ride and good vehicle handling. An optimization technique is used to choose the suspension parameters that meet these design requirements. In this present work a two degree of freedom quarter car vehicle vibration model is considered for optimization. Sprung mass acceleration and relative displacement of quarter car are considered as the measure of ride comfort and vehicle handling respectively. Golden section search optimization technique is used for single objective optimization of quarter car considering sprung mass acceleration as objective function and relative displacement as constraint. It is noticed that the accuracy level in getting the optimized value using this approach is comparatively high and reliable.
