Computer Modelling of a Vehicle System


The purpose of computer modeling of a vehicle system is to develop basic methods for computer formulation and solution of the equations of motion. This requires systematic techniques for formulating the equations and numerical methods for solving them. The computer program developed here for the analysis of vehicle system dynamics is a special purpose program. It deals with only a specific type of application say lateral stability or dynamic response. The equations of motion for that particular application are derived a priori and then formulated into the program. As input to the program, the various data’s like, mass of the entire vehicle, sprung mass, unstrung mass etc., the initial values of parameters of a vehicle system have been provided. Such a special purpose program can be made computationally efficient and its storage requirement can be minimized with the result that it will be suitable for implementation on small personal computers.
