Application of Virtual Prototyping Technology in the Design of Drive Axle
In this paper, a virtual prototype model of the nonlinear vibration system is built by using the ADAMS(Automatic Dynamic Analysis of Mechanical Systems), and the simulation process of the hydro-pneumatic suspension is presented. A simulation analysis of the drive axle is done with road unevenness. The result shows that it is more important to consider the nonlinear damping than the nonlinear stiffness in the analysis of a nonlinear structure with a random response sometimes.
