Construction and Simulation of a 2S1 Tracked Vehicle Model and its Verification Using Vertical Forces on the Road Wheels while Overcoming a Single Obstacle
We present information about construction tasks of tracked vehicle model in MSC.ADAMS computer program. Kinematic and dynamic relationships inside entire suspension system are described here. Elements of the vehicle are grouped in few subsystems, like suspension, wheels or tracks. The significant accent is put on the tracks with its force connections. Those connections are between all track links as also between wheels, links and ground surface. Also significant accent are put on damping value estimation. It is estimated based on tolerance area of characteristics of real damper element, which is applied in this type of vehicles. In next part of the article, process of appropriate damping characteristics selection is described. This process is applied for high fidelity model building.
