MODIFIED ARTICULATED VEHICLE SIMULATION

This is a final report on a research task to add to an existing simulation the capability to simulate the Breeze jackknife restraint device. This report documents the addition as follows. First, an overview of the analytical problem is presented, followed by an explanation of the kinematics and some details of the new software. The kinematics section is closely linked to the software by relating equations in the text to line numbers in the computer program. Next, some sample computer runs introduce the input/output of the modified simulation. A flow chart and a list of the modified program is given in the appendix.
