  • Suspension and tyres: stability of heavy vehicles
    • Authors: Gonzalo Moreno, Lauro Cesar Nicolazzi, Rodrigo De Souza Vieira, Daniel Martins
      Pages: 305 - 326
      Abstract: The static stability factor (SSF) of a vehicle is mainly dependent on the lateral and vertical location of the vehicle's centre of gravity (CG) and this point is, in turn, influenced by many factors associated with, for instance, the vehicle suspension, tyres and the fifth-wheel among others. These systems allow the movement of the vehicle body along with its CG, which modifies substantially the SSF calculation. This paper describes the modelling of a leaf spring suspension system and the tyres using mechanism theory and subsequent kinematic analysis using the Davies method. The proposed model is planar and allows relative motion between the sprung and unsprung masses of the vehicle. This paper also compares the classic vehicle stability analysis with the proposed model, and the influence of the suspension and tyres in relation to the vehicle stability is evaluated.

  • Fatigue model of a disc valve system used in shock absorbers
    • Authors: Piotr Czop, Damian SÅ‚awik
      Pages: 327 - 344
      Abstract: The aim of the paper is to formulate and validate a fatigue damage model applicable to disc spring valve systems used in automotive and railway hydraulic shock absorbers. The valve consists of a stack of thin disc springs of varying diameters which are designed to provide a controlled annular flow through a valve system. A disc spring stack is subjected to fatigue damage therefore it has to be accurately designed and validated to provide the required fatigue damage performance and minimise failure risk of shock absorber. The fatigue model developed in this work facilitates a virtual valve system pre-selection process to reduce the required testing capacity, i.e., the number of long-term and expensive fatigue tests performed on servo-hydraulic testing machines. The model accuracy was evaluated using the experimental high-cycle fatigue tests which were conducted on the high-frequency servo-hydraulic load frame machine.

  • Dynamic behaviour of a trailing arm suspension unit of a tracked vehicle
           with flexible and rigid elements
    • Authors: Jothi Sundaram, Balamurugan Varadarajan, Malarmohan Keppanan
      Pages: 345 - 360
      Abstract: The trailing arm suspension system is being widely used in off-road tracked vehicles. This paper compares the dynamics of a single trailing arm suspension unit of a tracked vehicle with flexible road wheel arm and rigid road wheel arm. Road wheel arm is an essential element connecting the chassis assembly and the road wheel assembly. In most research work, the trailing arm suspension is generally modelled as a spring with vertical stiffness and damping. In this study, the trailing arm suspension is modelled as a combination of sprung mass, torsion spring, road wheel arm and road wheel assembly. Moreover, the road wheel arm is modelled as a flexible body in one case and a rigid body in another case, so that the influence of including structural elasticity of the road wheel arm on the dynamic characteristics of the single trailing arm suspension unit can be studied using finite element analysis.
      Keywords: tracked vehicle; trailing arm suspension; road wheel arm; flexible body; rigid body; sinusoidal terrain; structural flexibility; flexible body dynamics

  • Simulation study of a bi-articulated vehicle with two different electric
           traction motors using simulated annealing optimisation
    • Authors: Chang-Han Bae, Joon-Hyoung Ryu, Young-Guk Kim
      Pages: 361 - 377
      Abstract: This paper presents a simulation study of the propulsion performance of a bi-articulated vehicle equipped with two types of traction motors, a 45 kW induction motor and a 200 kW permanent magnetic synchronous motor. We determined the necessary combination conditions of these two traction motors to fulfil the traction specifications of a 26 m bi-articulated vehicle. Two sets of propulsion conditions, using the 3rd and 4th or 2nd and 4th axles, have been investigated and the appropriate power capacity of the traction motors has been determined. Computer simulations for the traction motors, using the above-mentioned propulsion conditions, have been performed; moreover, the propulsion performance for different traction patterns and the road slope conditions have been analysed. In addition, the spring and damping factors of the mechanical couplers for the bi-articulated vehicle have been evaluated using a simulated annealing scheme to help diminish the transient oscillatory motion between the vehicle units.

  • Effect of baffle geometry and air pressure on transient fluid slosh in
           partially filled tanks
    • Authors: Qiong-Yao Wang, Subhash Rakheja, Wen-Bin Shangguan
      Pages: 378 - 401
      Abstract: Effects of baffle geometric parameters such as curvature, opening size and shape, and inclination on the transient load shift and slosh forces within a partly filled liquid tank are investigated under longitudinal and lateral acceleration fields using computational fluid dynamic (CFD) methods. Validity of the simulations is illustrated considering steady-state responses, and fundamental slosh frequencies of cleanbore and baffled tanks. The slosh forces imposed on the baffles and end caps are evaluated for different baffle design parameters. The results suggest that the liquid cargo load shift, longitudinal and lateral forces, and pitch moment due to transient fluid slosh are strongly influenced by the baffle shape, and opening size. It is further shown that sloshing with medium to high fill levels can cause substantial increase in pressure of air trapped between the end cap and baffle, and between adjacent baffles, which contributes considerably to the resultant forces on the baffles and opposes the force due to liquid phase of the flow.
