Vehicle Model on Uneven Terrain – Multibody, Multi-Domain Physical Model in MapleSim – Maplesoft

Vehicle Model on Uneven Terrain

This model represents a vehicle chassis with double-wishbone front suspension and trailing arm rear suspension. No CAD file for the chassis is attached to the model to better show the deflection of the suspension during the simulation.

The Fiala tire model is used to describe the tire forces and moments at the contact patch between the tire and the 3D uneven terrain.
