Cebon, D (1986) HEAVY VEHICLE VIBRATION - A CASE STUDY. Dynamics of Vehicles on Roads and on Tracks, Proceedings of IAVSD Symposium (International Associa. pp. 30-43.Full text not available from this repository.
A method is presented for the digital simulation of multiple degrees-of-freedom lumped parameter vibrating systems with arbitrary constitutive elements in an inertial frame of reference. The geometry of the system is treated independently of the constitutive elements and as a result nonlinear (time domain) or linearised (frequency domain) calculations may be performed using a single input description. The method is used to simulate a 3-axle rigid heavy commercial vehicle for harsh vibrating conditions. Some of the assumptions to which the calculations are sensitive are examined. Agreement between the response of a 3-dimensional whole vehicle model and measurements on the test vehicle is satisfactory.
