Optimizing Vehicle Suspension Design through System Level Simulation
Optimization of vehicle ride and handling performance must meet many competing requirements. For example, vibration in the frequency range that causes driver discomfort needs to be minimized, which requires decreasing suspension stiffness. Yet the suspension deflection should stay within travel constraints, so suspension stiffness needs to be increased. The traditional practice of relying on test cars for suspension development is time consuming and costly.
In this webinar, we will demonstrate a simulation-led design approach, which reduces reliance on test vehicles and produces optimal results. The approach starts with the development of a fast and accurate vehicle model in Simscape, captures frequency response and suspension travel requirements in Simulink Design Optimization, and concludes by automated optimization of suspension parameters to meet performance requirements.
