INTEGRATION OF REAL SUSPENSION ELEMENTS IN AN ANALOGUE SIMULATION OF VERTICAL VEHICLE VIBRATIONS

A simulation system for vertical vehicle vibrations is proposed and investigated, in which a real suspension element is integrated in the electrical analogue mode. By leaving the scope of total electrical simulation the difficulties of programming complex elements are avoided. The method and the application of the simulation system is explained for the example of a two mass model, in which the electrical simulation of the damping is replaced by a real shock absorber. After the integration of this element the effect of changing oil temperature on the vibration properties of the model is shown.
