Motorcycle Dynamics Modeling and Simulation Based on Road Simulation
Based on the stimulation and restriction of road simulation, the 5-DOF motorcycle multi-body dynamic model is derived, and the differential equation of motion and state-space formulation are developed according to Lagrange Equation. By iterating the load spectra, which was sampled on Hainan Proving Ground, the driving signal of motorcycle road simulation is obtained. With the driving signal as input, the motorcycle dynamics is simulated using MATLAB program, then the simulation and experiment are compared. The result shows that motorcycle dynamics can be analyzed and estimated precisely by combining road simulation with computer simulation.
