Efforts by vehicle manufacturers to reduce road testing have resulted in an increased reliance on the simulation methods for loads measurement and validation, including increased emphasis on methods to characterize and digitally represent test road inputs. Accurate terrain models are especially important in the case of large dynamic road inputs, and for evaluation of vehicle suspension loads and durability. In contrast to direct terrain topology measurement, methods to estimate test road input using only vehicle suspension measurements and a tire dynamic model will be presented. Applications of terrain models for generic simulation and testing will also be discussed.
