Abstract:

The results from simple ride vibration models of off-road vehicles are examined in terms of natural frequencies, mode shapes, frequency response and response to realistic ground inputs. Despite the limitations of such models inherent in the assumptions, it is concluded that they provide designers with useful information about the dominant features of vehicle ride response. Author
