Abstract:

Ride dynamics refers to the vibratory motion of vehicles in response to traversal of irregular terrain. For many military, commercial, and agricultural vehicles operating in an on- and off-road environment, overall mobility is limited by such vibratory motion. Simulation studies of ride dynamics were used for design and evaluation of vehicles. These studies were accomplished through the use of mathematical models that reflect the structure and interaction of vehicles and terrains. An M-37 vehicle was selected for characterization using the Wiener-Bose model.
