Chassis Committee Panel: Chassis Component Design and Multi-Discipline System Integration
Moderator - Mehdi Ahmadian, Virginia Tech. Panelists - Yang Chen, Virginia Tech. Erik Ellifson, Oshkosh Corporation Jason Shiffler, Hendrickson Truck CV Systems This session will focus on chassis component design and multi-discipline system integration for commercial vehicles, addressing issues such as ride, handling, or directional stability evaluation, traction, braking, or steering control, semi-active and active suspensions design, tire and wheel technologies, chassis component or subsystem design. Additional topics may include vehicle dynamic analysis and motion control, braking system design and performance evaluation, NVH control of components, testing and simulation studies on commercial, agricultural, construction, and military vehicles, and new research and testing related to commercial vehicle chassis. The session is intended to highlight the great deal of effort that has been dedicated by the industry, academia, and government organizations for improving chassis components for commercial vehicles, intended to make commercial vehicles safer while also improving comfort and ease of driving.
