_ 1 _ ME 375 HOMEWORK #5 Spring 2010 Out: Feb. 10 th , 2010 Due: Feb. 17 th , 2010 Problem #1 (30%) The dynamics of vertical motion of a vehicle can be approximated with a simple 2 mass model, the “Quarter-car Model”. The model captures the interaction of the suspension stiffness and damping, the tire stiffness, the vehicle body mass and the tire/wheel mass with variations in the road surface. Where: - M is ¼ the vehicle body mass [kg]; m is the mass of one wheel/tire [kg] - K is the suspension spring stiffness [N/m]; C is the wheel stiffness [N/m] - B is the suspension damping constant [Ns/m] - x(t), the input
