Vibration Simulation of Articulated Dump Truck with the Variation of Longitudinal Center of Gravity Position of Rear Sprung Mass and Rear Suspension Stiffness
The paper is concerned with the vibration for the articulated dump truck (ADT) which is multi-axle vehicle and different from rigid dump truck. The balanced suspension was employed as the rear suspension in the 60t ADT which the paper takes as the research object. A vibration model of 6 dof for the truck was proposed. The impact of the variation of longitudinal center of gravity position of rear sprung mass and rear suspension stiffness on vibration was investigated in stochastic excitation of the truck in the frequency domain. It is found that it is beneficial to the comfort of the truck when the center of gravity of the sprung mass moves forward and the impact of rear sprung stiffness on vibration is not too great. The results of the vibration for the truck are provided for the design of the 60t ADT.
