Finite Element Quarter Vehicle Suspension Model under Periodic Bump and Sinusoidal Road Excitation

What is it about?

The paper studies the behavior of a quarter-car suspension model under periodic road excitation: sinusoidal and bump (trapezoidal shape) for a constant vehicle speed. A theoretical and a finite element model were developed.

Why is it important?

The theoretical model has two degrees of freedom and a modal and sinusoidal excitation was performed to compare with finite model analysis. The finite element analysis consists of three parts: preload, modal analysis and deterministic external excitation.

Perspectives

Oana Otat

The study consists of the analysis of forces, displacements and accelerations that are transmitted to the vehicle regarding their variation in time and frequency.
