Consistent Vehicle Model for Determining the Design Envelope, Ride Comfort and Component Load

This article introduces the simulation process for the method of multi-body systems and its integration in the development activities of Magna Steyr. Modeling, model parameterisation and model validation are among the most important steps during the simulation process. Based on the development-relevant question, to what extent do 16" and 17" tires effect the design envelope, ride comfort and component load, the implementation of the above issues during the simulation process is explained. Apart from the cross-function tasks--design envelope, ride comfort and component load--the hierarchical approach to model validation during modelling is of scientific interest as well.
