An Analytical And Experimental Investigation Of The Driver-Seat-Suspension System

- Oct 30, 2017 -

Vertical seat-suspension systems are characterized by a generalized two- degree-of-freedom model incorporating nonlinearities due to shock absorber damping, linkage friction and bump stops. The analytical model is validated using the results obtained from laboratory tests performed under sinusoidal excitations in the 0.5-8.0 Hz frequency range. Human body models of varying complexities, derived from the mechanical impedance data, are discussed and integrated to the nonlinear seat-suspension model to derive a coupled driver- seat-suspension model. Nonlinear analytical models are expressed by their linear equivalent models using a local equivalent linearization technique based on energy similarity. The vibration attenuation performance characteristics of the seat-suspension and driver-seat-suspension models are investigated for deterministic and random cab floor excitations. The results of the study revealed that the seated human body contributes considerably to the overall ride performance.
