Validation of ADMS/Car simulations and dynamic performance in multi-link suspensions
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
Due to the high costs of developing new chassis and suspensions, it is interesting to reduce the costs with time efficient MBA (Multibody System Analysis) programs like ADAMS, DADS, Mechanica, etc. In order to reduce developing time, hence costs, the simulations have to be as close the reality as possible. To get there, students, the future in mechanical engineering, have to learn about concurrent engineering, modeling, simulation and distributed engineering. Moreover, thesis work and research have to be carried out even further in this area to find new approaches and increase the knowledge.This thesis designs, simulates and verifies through vehicle testing a new suspension for a race car, which improves the entry and exit into turns while reducing under steer. Tools to enhance the acceleration, analyze control systems and build road data files are presented in this thesis for engineers and students of the future.
