Infl uence of LCV Bearing Structure Stiffness on its Static and Dynamic Properties of Stability and Steerability

D. A. Butin, A.V. Tumasov, P. V. Sereda
Price: 50 руб.
 This article is dedicated to studying the infl uence of the stiffness frame on dynamics and stability of a light commercial vehicle. Studies were conducted by simulation using ADAMS/CAR software package. The model was validated by comparing the results of the simulation and real tests. The objects of the studies were 4 different models of a vehicle having different parameters of frame rigidity. The research included the following tests: “going into corner”, “lane change” and “tilt test”.  The results showed that a car with a rigid frame has better handling properties.
Keywords: frame stiffness, chassis torsional stiffness,  handling, stability, steerability, 
vehicle dynamics, light commercial vehicle.
