Suspension systems in vertical dynamics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This section is concerned with designing the dynamic properties of vehicle suspension systems to improve the dynamic properties of vehicles. The performance of suspension systems can be assessed quantitatively in terms of four parameters: passenger comfort, suspension deflection, tire load variation, and energy consumption, see Gillespie (1992), Cole (2001). Vehicle vibrations excited by road irregularities might lead to the fatigue of the driver and passengers, as well as damage to the vehicle and the payload. It is widely accepted that there is a correlation between passenger comfort (or ride comfort) and the heave, pitch, and roll accelerations of the sprung mass.
