Transient Motion Control of Passive and Semiactive Damping for Vehicle Suspensions
MetadataShow full item record
The results of the study show that semiactive dampers have minimal effect on improving the vehicle body and tire transients due to forces or torques applied to the body, as compared to passive dampers. For road inputs, however, semiactive dampers are able to provide a more favorable compromise between the body and axle transient dynamics, when compared to passive dampers. The fuzzy logic semiactive control policy that is proposed in this research is better able to balance the body and axle dynamics than the conventional semiactive damping control policies that are investigated. Further research on the application of fuzzy logic semiactive control concepts is suggested, in order to fully investigate the potential of such control schemes for vehicle suspensions.
