COMPUTER SIMULATION OF THE DYNAMIC BEHAVIOUR OF ROAD VEHICLES

This paper presents the application of a computer method developed by the authors and their colleagues for the kinematic and dynamic analysis of plane mechanism, to the analysis and simulation of road vehicle suspensions. For this purpose, some improvements and new capabilities have been added to the original method described previously. In the follow-up a very general description of the method is given, and after that, these particular new characteristics are described in greater detail. Finally, an example of a car suspension is presented.
