Vehicle Models

For the modeling of vehicle motions with frequencies up to 50 Hz the method of multibody systems is most appropriate. The composition of the mechanical model is obtained immediately from the design of the vehicle due to great differences in the stiffness distribution, Fig. 2.1. In the following the generation of the equations of motion for multibody systems is presented step by step up to the basics of computer-aided approaches.
