Effect of Control Techniques on the Performance of Semiactive Dampers
(Virginia Tech, 2001-12-19)
A computer simulation is used to examine the effects that various control methods have on the performance of semiactive dampers in controlling the dynamics of a single suspension (quarter car) model. The level of dynamic ...
Application of Magnetorheological Dampers for Vehicle Seat Suspensions
(Virginia Tech, 1997-12-03)
This study evaluates and provides solutions to the problem of poor subjective feel of seat suspensions that employ magnetorheological (MR) dampers and skyhook control. An Isringhausen seat suspension that had been modified ...
On the Control Aspects of Semiactive Suspensions for Automobile Applications
(Virginia Tech, 2003-06-19)
This analytical study evaluates the response characteristics of a two-degree-of freedom quarter-car model, using passive and semi-active dampers, along with a seven-degree-of-freedom full vehicle model. The behaviors of ...
