MATHEMATICAL MODEL OF FOUR-WHEELED VEHICLE FOR HYBRID COMPUTER VEHICLE HANDLING PROGRAM

This report is divided into two parts. The first part is devoted to the documentations of the mathematical model of a four-wheeled vehicle. Particular attention is given to the derivation of the equations of motion of the sprung and unsprung masses and their subsequent modifications and revisions during the simulation development. The second part contains the requirements for the definition of the vehicle parametric data. Experimental or analytical methods are discussed to determine various mechanical properties of vehicles.
