Modeling by Multibody Systems

  • O. Schiehlen
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 274)


For the investigation of vehicle handling and ride, due to frequencies less than 50 Hz, the method of multibody systems is well qualified. The derivation of equations of motion is discussed in general without any specific application in mind. A complex automobile model is treated by this method later on.
