Motorcycle Dynamics Simulation Based on Real Road Load
The motorcycle dynamics simulation method based on the road simulation test and virtual prototype is developed, and a rigid-flexible coupling virtual prototype with test platform of motorcycle is created with CATIA, NASTRAN and ADAMS software. According to two-channel tire-coupled road simulator of MTS Systems Corporation, the simulation model and platform are repetitively refined to fairly high precision by comparing simulation results with experimental results. The iterated excitation signal based on real road load or typical spectrum of different roads is imported into the virtual test platform, the comfort and durability tests of motorcycle can be undertaken to replace road simulator, the test period and cost are greatly reduced, and test security is increased.
