MODELING AND RESEARCH OF BUS EQUIPPED WITH DYNAMIC STABILITY CONTROL SYSTEM
Keywords:bus, lateral stability, dynamic stability control, ESP, MSC.Adams
This paper is aimed at analysing manoeuvre stability of an intercity bus equipped with dynamic stability control system using the MSC Adams software. The study has been performed using the dynamic stability control system functioning under the principle and structure of distributed braking. Bus models have been developed on the basis of analysis results of in situ test methodology applied to analysis of heavy-duty vehicles. Numerical model has been designed as part of this study for assessment of reliability and relevance of the system in buses of similar type. Model parameters affecting the bus dynamics while cornering have been identified and graph of braking torques acting in the vehicle wheels have been developed during analysis of the results.
