Abstract: A low-frequency fore-and-aft vibration of a vehicle stimulated by accelerator pedal operation was investigated by using a mathematical model simulating the drive train, suspension, sprung mass, seats and human body. As a result, it was found important to take into consideration the vehicle body behaviour in the model. The effect of each element was clarified and some counter-measures for the drive train and suspension were found. In addition, the effects of the input torque characteristics from the engine were investigated.
Keywords: vehicle vibration; vibrational analysis; mathematical modelling; accelerator pedal operation; suspension vibration; drive train vibration; human body vibration.
