SUSPLAB: A suspension component simulation tool for MATLAB

Abstract [en]

A GUI-assisted (Graphical User Interface) suspension component simulation tool has been developed in the computer package MATLAB. The purpose is to provide an example of a lightweight and expandable platform for educational use in the field of vehicle dynamics and suspension components. In this first version the program focused on passive rail vehicle components and their mechanical behaviour during harmonic displacement excitation. The simulation is however fairly general and may be used for describing suspension components in road vehicles and a range of other engineering applications after some modification. Thus the software and this report also emphasizes on the modular approach of the software and how it can be expanded and tailored by individual users. Calculations are based on linear and non-linear, one-dimensional models with a relation between force and motion. The simulation tool is mainly developed for educational purposes and is therefore, in its current state, subject to compromises between accuracy, model complexity and computational effort.

Abstract [sv]

Ett simuleringspaket med grafiskt användargränssnitt har programmerats för MATLAB. Syftet är att exemplifiera hur en lätthanterlig och utbyggbar datorplattformar kan utvecklas och implementeras för utbildningsändamål inom fordonsdynamik samt införskaffa djupare kunskaper i komponent- och simuleringsteknik. Den version av programmet som beskrivs i denna rapport är också den första och tungvikten ligger på passiva fjädringskomponenter för spårfordon och hur dessa beter sig under harmonisk förskjutningsexcitering. Programmets struktur och utbyggbarhet är också en viktig del i detta utvecklingsarbete. Beräkning och simulering är baserad på endimensionella, linjära modeler byggda på relationen kraft – förskjutning. Simuleringspaketet är utvecklat i utbildningsyfte och därför också begränsat beträffande noggrannhet, modellkomplexitet och krav på beräkningskapacitet.
