A method for predicting body deformation during operation, which cannot be measured by conventional methods, has been developed. The method creates a body model based on the characteristics extracted by modal analysis of the results of a vibration testing of an actual vehicle. The model is combined with a suspension model, using multibody dynamics software, and body deformation calculations are performed. In this paper, the influence of body deformation on vehicle controllability and stability is studied and the usefulness of the method is verified.
