Abstract:

Virtual product development with the aid of simulation software is particularly advanced in the vehicle industry. The purely visual representation of simulation results within a graphic environment often makes it difficult to sufficiently record all necessary evaluation criteria. Such limitations are largely reduced with the aid of a simulator which enables the evaluation of vehicle dynamics as well as vibration comfort. The application fields of such a simulator range from a projection of vibrations to an interactive simulation of vehicle dynamics. The motion system plays an important role in simulator experiments. It represents a compromise between technical requirements or wishes, current technical feasibility and financial possibilities. The technical requirements on the motion system of a universal simulator for road and rail vehicles, as well as aircraft, cover a wide spectrum of potential applications. With the aid of the simulation, measurement results from experiments as well as experience, the limiting parameters of this simulator are assessable for certain maneuvers.
