Abstract
  • This work develops the loads, boundary conditions, and model construction techniques used to create a high-level vehicle analysis model. The loads are derived from the overall performance parameters of the vehicle, which include 3 axis accelerations and aerodynamic forces from Computational Fluid Dynamics outputs. The boundary condition of the analysis is the mass of the vehicle directly. The analysis focuses on the vehicle on track, during quasi steady state events such as cornering, acceleration, and braking. The quasi steady state nature of these events is replicated in a linear elastic analysis by using the method of inertia relief. Additionally, a variety of vehicle stiffness parameters including torsional frame, camber, and toe stiffness are measured with the same analysis methodology. Finally, the analysis results are compared to physical testing.
