Abstract: Various simulation programs are used in analysing vehicle performance. In some cases, experimental databased simulation programs are more effective in terms of practicality or calculation accuracy. Models for analysing vehicle performance (driving performance, noise, vibration, etc.) have been developed and systemised by unifying experimental data acquisition systems and simulation systems. Furthermore, a database containing simulation inputs has been constructed. This system embodies the advanced concepts of CAE systems advocated in recent years. Application of this system should enable effective performance analyses to be carried out in every area.
