This model was developed for use in teaching modeling, simulation, and optimization in graduate engineering courses. The simulation is particularly useful for demonstrating different simulation designs that are optimized for different applications (e.g., maximum handling capability, maximum comfort, etc.). The model is based on the electric vehicle case study found in this dissertation:
umf is a multiplication factor that allows quick exploration of road profiles with different levels of roughness. It should be set to 1 for the output to correspond to the road profile in the .mat file.
Nice catch Louis. Yes, dt should be changed to dt2 on line 62.
