VIBRATION ANALYSIS OF A TILTING VEHICLE WITH INCLINED STRUT SUSPENSION

A tilting vehicle with inclined strut suspensions is investigated as an example of the vehicle of this type and the characteristics of its vibration are analyzed. A vibration model that can be used for digital computer analysis was derived and the principal modes, frequency responses, and transient response to a curved track were calculated. These calculations have been carried out on three cases by changing the parameters of the tilting link. The first and second cases correspond to tilting vehicles with different heights of the tilting axis. The third case corresponds to a non-tilting vehicle. Discussions are made on the effects of the tilting suspension on the characteristics of the vibration by comparing these numerical results in each case.
