Conventional matrix formulation of the equations of motion of vibration of multiple degrees-of-freedom, lumped parameters systems, precludes the use of nonlinear constitutive elements. Sophisticated multibody approaches are unnecessarily complex when the system can be treated in an inertial frame of reference with the assumption of small deflections. An alternative matrix formulation of the vibration equations has been developed as part of a study of the dynamic road forces generated by commercial vehicles. The equations are suitable for nonlinear (time domain) simulation or automatic linearization and solution in the frequency domain. This paper describes the application of the method to the simulation of a heavy commercial vehicle traversing rough terrain.
