Abstract:

The report contains the mathematical equations of motion required to construct a hybrid model simulation of a vehicle operating on rigid terrain. They are grouped roughly by vehicle components sprung mass, unsprung mass, suspension, drive trainbrakes, wheels and tires. Equations representing both the double A-arm and the solid axle suspension system and two different tire models one assuming the friction circle and the other the friction ellipse concept of total tire force are included.
