Abstract

Road vehicles during operation are usually subjected to the kinematical excitations of the roughness of road surface. In case of minor roads of poor quality not only the smaller structural vibrations but also larger oscillations (vertical, rolling and pitch motions) of the chassis and vehicle body occur frequently. In order to decrease these undesirable oscillations, active suspensions are proposed. Currently, simple vehicle models with only a few degrees-of-freedom are usually applied in the design of active suspensions. Therefore, the question arises whether the active suspensions designed will be more effective if more complex vehicle models are applied as controlled plants.
