PROPERTIES OF NON-LINEAR TWO-FORCE ELEMENTS USED IN VEHICLE DYNAMIC SYSTEMS UNDER STATIONARY STOCHASTIC EXCITATION. PART 1 - IDEAL ELEMENTS

Non-linear two-force elements (springs, dampers, etc.) are commonly found in vehicle dynamic systems. Their mathematical idealization by expressing their force-excitation relation by a real function is called to be an ideal element. Excitation of these elements can be often considered as being stationary stochastic. Their general properties under such excitation are discussed and computation of the stochastic properties of the output force for known excitation are shown in this paper. Transfer functions of the elements, i.e. output force-input relations in the frequency domain, under the given excitational conditions form the base for the evaluation. For part 2 see TRIS 451961.
