There are many automotive design considerations unique to heavy vehicles. This up-to-date publication explores current research and applications in both active and passive truck suspensions. Complete contents include: experimental comparison of passive, semi-active on/off, and semi-active continuous suspensions; the control of semi- active dampers using relative feedback signals; self-tuning optimal control of an active suspension; active and semi-active heavy truck suspensions to reduce pavement damage; effects of passive and semi- active suspensions on body and wheel hop control; and modeling and control of large flexible frame vehicles using bond graphs.
