The Dynamics of Vehicles on Roads and on Tracks

Edited By Robert Frohling Copyright 2000

    These proceedings provide an authoritative source of information in the field of suspension design, vehicle-infrastructure interaction, mechatronics and vehicle control systems for road as well as rail vehicles. The research presented includes modelling and simulation.

    Optimal and robust design of a road vehicle suspension system, Influences of suspension kinematics on pitching dynamics of cars in longitudinal manoeuvring, Track settlement prediction using computer simulation tools, Dynamic train/track interaction including state-dependent track properties and flexible vehicle components, A new approach for the modelling of track geometry recording vehicles and the deconvolution of versine measurements, A 3-level driver model and its application to driving simulations, Driver models in vehicle development, Analysis of driver's steering and speed control strategies in curve negotiation, A driver model as development tool for vehicle handling design, An analysis of driver's control algorithm using neural network modelling, Load impacts at railway turnout crossing, Simulation of wheel/rail interaction in turnouts and special track work
