Simulation of Vehicle Properties using ADAMS Tracked Vehicle

Abstract [en]

In this work Multi System Simulation in ADAMS is used to Simulate the behaviour of a Tracked Vehicle. The purpose was to use an ADAMS module called ATV (abbreviation for ADAMS Tracked Vehicle) to model the Combat Vehicle 9040 from Hägglunds Vehicle AB and to verify it against measurements of the vehicle rotational acceleration made on a concrete covered track with a pre defined geometry. Measurements have been made at speeds of 10, 20, 30 and 40 km/h. The ATV makes it possible to make at totally parametric model of a tracked vehicle. Hence the work has been to choose parameters such that two aims have been reached, simulations that doesn´t fail and a model behaviour close to the real vehicle behaviour. Simulations were made on a track with a geometry corresponding to that where measurements were carried out. Two kinds of results have been received. The first is a set of observations and methods of how to estimate model parameters to actually make the simulation work. The second is observations of how some parameters used affect the actual vehicle behaviour. Together with the model settings the study is to serve as a complement to help files documenting the ATV.
