  1. 1. Suspension design for off-road construction machines

    Author : Adam Rehnberg; Lars Drugge; Annika Stensson Trigell; David Crolla; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; construction machine; engineering vehicle; earth mover; wheel loader; vehicle dynamics; vehicle engineering; whole body vibrations; off-road vehicle; anläggningsmaskin; entreprenadmaskin; hjullastare; fordonsdynamik; fordonsteknik; helkroppsvibrationer; terrängfordon; Vehicle engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : Construction machines, also referred to as engineering vehicles or earth movers, are used in a variety of tasks related to infrastructure development and material handling. While modern construction machines represent a high level of sophistication in several areas, their suspension systems are generally rudimentary or even nonexistent. READ MORE

  2. 2. Towards efficient vehicle dynamics development : From subjective assessments to objective metrics, from physical to virtual testing

    Author : Gaspar Gil Gómez; Mikael Nybacka; Lars Drugge; Egbert Bakker; Peter Pfeffer; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Steering feel; vehicle handling; driver preference; objective metrics; subjective assessments; regression analysis; artificial neural network; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    Abstract : Vehicle dynamics development is strongly based on subjective assessments (SA) of vehicle prototypes, which is expensive and time consuming. Consequently, in the age of computer- aided engineering (CAE), there is a drive towards reducing this dependency on physical test- ing. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dynamics of Vehicle-Deck Interactions

    Author : Junbo Jia; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Vehicle-deck interactions; Lightweight structure; Vehicle dynamics; Vibration analysis.; Lashing; Vehicle securing; Ship motions; Modal testing; Finite element analysis;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis concerns the modelling and analysis of vehicle-ship deck interactions. The physical modelling of vehicles is discussed together with the modelling of supporting structures/ship decks, and the interactions between vehicles and supporting structures. READ MORE

  4. 4. Wheel-rail contact modelling in vehicle dynamics simulation

    Author : Matin Shahzamanian Sichani; Mats Berg; Roger Enblom; Elena Kabo; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wheel-rail contact; non-elliptic contact; vehicle-track interaction; rail vehicle dynamics; rolling contact; MBS; virtual penetration; Järnvägsgruppen - Fordonsteknik; Järnvägsgruppen - Fordonsteknik; Järnvägsgruppen - Tribologi; The KTH Railway Group - Tribology;

    Abstract : The wheel-rail contact is at the core of all research related to vehicle-track interaction. This tiny interface governs the dynamic performance of rail vehicles through the loads it transmits and, like any high stress concentration zone, it is subjected to serious damage phenomena.

  5. 5. Driver-Vehicle Interaction : Identification, Characterization and Modelling of Path Tracking Skill

    Author : Andreas Erséus; Stensson Trigell Annika; David Cole; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Vehicle engineering; Farkostteknik; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : Since the dawn of the automobile, driver behaviour has been an issue. Driving can result in accidents that may harm not only the driver but also passengers and the surroundings. This calls for measures that restrict the usage of vehicles and to assist the individual driver to conduct the driving in a safe, yet practically efficient manner. READ MORE
