Short description

In Transportation Project 2, you extend the quarter car model from your first semester to three degrees of freedom, including the suspension, and you model a number of driving dynamics scenarios. Project planning and teamwork play a central role in this project.

Module contents

In basic project 2, you will extend the Quarter Car model from the first semester and create an extended vehicle dynamics simulator with 3 degrees of freedom including the suspension. You create the free body image for a vehicle that can move in horizontal and vertical direction, as well as rotate around a horizontal axis. From the free body image, you create a stock-flow model with which you simulate a simple driving dynamics scenario, for example the influence of bad shock absorbers on driving comfort or braking distance.
