Abstract

THE STABILITY AND COMFORT OF VEHICLES DEPEND ON THE OPERATION OF THE SUSPENSION SYSTEM. TO INCREASE THE SMOOTHNESS AND COMFORT FOR PASSENGERS IN THE VEHICLE, THE STIFFNESS OF THE SUSPENSION SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE CHANGED FLEXIBLY. THE CONVENTIONAL PNEUMATIC SUSPENSION SYSTEM CAN PARTIALLY MEET THESE REQUIREMENTS. HOWEVER, THE CHANGE IS NOT MUCH. THIS PAPER INTRODUCES A MODEL OF THE PNEUMATIC SUSPENSION SYSTEM INTEGRATED WITH A HYDRAULIC ACTUATOR. THIS IS A COMPLETELY NOVEL AND UNIQUE METHOD. IN THE CASE THAT THE EXCITATION IS RANDOM, AVERAGE VALUES OF DISPLACEMENT AND ACCELERATION OF THE SPRUNG MASS ARE ONLY 12.56 (MM) AND 3.78 (M/S2) IF THE VEHICLE USES THE INTEGRATED PNEUMATIC SUSPENSION SYSTEM. IN CONTRAST, THIS VALUE IS VERY LARGE, UP TO 30.70 (MM) AND 6.53 (M/S2) IF THE PASSIVE SUSPENSION SYSTEM IS USED. SIMILARLY, THIS CHANGE IS ALSO VERY LARGE IN THE REMAINING SURVEY SITUATIONS. OVERALL, THE VALUES OF ACCELERATION AND DISPLACEMENT OF THE SPRUNG MASS ARE SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED WHEN THE VEHICLE IS EQUIPPED WITH AN INTEGRATED PNEUMATIC SUSPENSION SYSTEM. THE RESULTS OF THE RESEARCH SHOWED THE ADVANTAGES OF THIS METHOD COMPARED TO OTHER METHODS.
