Article Preview

The variable stiffness and damping (VSVD) suspension system offers an interesting option to improve driver comfort in an energy efficient way. The aim of this study is to analyze the influence of the spring ratio on the VSVD. The realization of the VSVD is obtained by the application of variable damping with magnetorheological (MR) damper. In this study, the nonlinear damping force characteristic of the MR damper is modeled with the Bouc-Wen model and the road disturbance is modeled by a stationary random process with road displacement power spectral density. It is shown from simulation that VSVD has a potential benefit in improving performance of vehicle suspension.
