Assessment of Passenger’s Ride Comfort of a Tricycle

Open access

Abstract

Passenger ride comfort of road vehicles is one of the most important performances of vehicle. The research of automotive passenger ride comfort is getting more and more important. In this contribution, the multibody model of a three-wheeled vehicle and analyses of passenger ride comfort is presented. The vehicle model and dynamic analyses were performed using the Simpack software package. The dynamic analyses of the vehicle driving were carried out on the road model with different surface quality. Analyses were focused on assessment of the passenger ride comfort on a driver seat.
