Building a Rear Suspension System Model

This section explains briefly on how to build a rear suspension model.

For example, select the Rear Dual axle suspension as the Rear Suspension and select the two axle driveline system in the Rear end of truck section to build a Rear suspension model using the Assembly Wizard. After building the model, the following model is displayed in the graphics area.

Figure 1.


It is recommended that a simple event to be added, such as Kinematics and Compliance Analysis, and then the model be simulated as soon as it is built. Events create motions and forces in the model which make the system move. Most events add additional parts to the model to perform the simulation. The following steps outline how to add an event to the previously built model.
  1. Click Analysis > Task Wizard, to begin adding an event to the model.

  2. Select the required Rear end task from the drop-down menu.

    Note: To learn more about the Ride Analysis, Roll Analysis, Steering Analysis, and Static Load Analysis refer to the Rear Suspension Analysis Tasks topic.
  3. Select Finish to exit the Task Wizard.
