Quarter Car Suspension - Active Control Demo App & Simulink

Just some project for Fun, special thanks to Dr. James Allison - I modified his code a bit to add tire damper and controller.

I developed this as my first small app,
App was developed for students to directly vary different suspension parameters and controller gains to understand the effect of the same and see it as an animation as well. Further scope would be to add a rootlocus or bodeplot tab so that the student can see how the added poles & zeros would change the system dynamics along with the motion of those poles and zeros on the plot. Hopefully developing a more intuitive understanding.
Again, special thanks to Dr. James Allison, a link to his video is : HERE
The controller implementation was inspired by the umich controls tutorials : HERE
