KEYWORDS: Steering System, Engine Vibrations, Dynamics, Modal Testing, Modal Analysis, ABSTRACT - In modern agriculture, the tractor’s use is indispensable and essential for various operations like cultivation, soil preparation, pulverization and many more. However, despite being efficient machines, tractors may be subjected to different level of vibrations in various parts of their structure. The vibration often plays the key cause of invalidation and component failures and also, affecting the ride and comfort. Since it is known that such vibration factors can affect the behavior in many ways, an understanding of their dynamic response is warranted. In this paper, case study related to reduction of steering system vibration is presented. Objective and Background: Vibration reduction is linked with the reduction either at source or on path. For such, it is necessary to know the reality of machines, component and mechanisms to mitigate the vibration levels on the tractor. From the testing and analysis of the components, it is possible to calculate the dynamic properties and vibration average level. The vibration reduction decreases the damages caused by…

Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) are becoming an essential part of the modern commercial automobile industry. Vehicle handling and stability are determined by the yaw rate and body slip of the vehicle. This paper is a comparative study of a nonlinear vehicle stability control algorithms for steering control based on two different controllers i.e. fuzzy logic based controller and PID controller. A full vehicle 14DOF model was made in Simulink to simulate an actual vehicle. The control algorithms are based on a two-track 7-DOF model with a non-linear tire model based on Pacejka “Magic tire formula”, which was used to establish the desired response of a full vehicle 14DOF model. It was found that the fuzzy logic-based control algorithm demonstrated an overall superior performance characteristic than a PID based control algorithm; this includes a significant decrease in time lag and overshoot. The proposed control algorithms were validated through the co-simulation of Carsim and Simulink in real time.

A Control Strategy to Reduce Torque Oscillation of the Electric Power Steering System

Concordia University Montreal-Subhash Rakheja
South China University of Technology-Duo Fu, Wen-Jun Yan, Wen-Bin Shangguan
Published 2019-06-05 by SAE International in United States
This paper proposes a new evaluation method of analyzing stability and design of a controller for an electric power steering (EPS) system. The main purpose of the EPS system’s control design is to ensure a comfortable driving experience of drivers, which mainly depends on the assist torque map. However, the high level of assist gain and its nonlinearity may cause oscillation, divergence and instability to the steering systems. Therefore, an EPS system needs to have an extra stability controller to eliminate the side effect of assist gain on system stability and attenuate the unpleasant vibration. In this paper, an accurate theoretical model is built and the method for evaluating system quality are suggested. The bench tests and vehicle experiments are carried out to verify the theoretical analysis. The evaluation method proposed in this paper can not only guide the design of controller parameters, but also evaluate the control effect while the performance of several controllers are all excellent.

Four primary power transmission subsystems work together in a wheel loader: the transmission system, the work functions system, the steering system, and the thermal management system. Optimizing any one of these without considering how it impacts the rest of the machine design can result in poor vehicle performance. On the flip side, looking at the machine as one cohesive system can result in true, overall optimization.

Published 2019-04-17 by SAE International in United States
The intent of this AIR is twofold: (1) to present descriptive summary of aircraft nosewheel steering and centering systems, and (2) to provide a discussion of problems encountered and “lessons learned” by various airplane manufacturers and users. This document covers both military aircraft (land-based and ship-based) and commercial aircraft. It is intended that the document be continually updated as new aircraft and/or new “lessons learned” become available.

Kinematics and Compliance Analysis of a 3.5 Tonne Load Capacity Independent Front Suspension for LCV

Hexagon Studio-Salih Kuris, Efe Gungor, Ataman Deniz, Gulsah Uysal, Baris Aykent
Published 2019-04-02 by SAE International in United States
This paper deals with the development of a 3.5 tonne carrying double wishbone front suspension for a low floor LCV. It is a novelty in this class of vehicles. It has a track width of 1810 mm and it has a recirculating ball steering system. The steering mechanism has been arranged so that the steering angle could reach to 48° that is a very effective angle in that vehicle range. This results as a lower turning radius which indicates a better handling for the vehicle.The steering and the front suspension system here have been optimized in terms of comfort and handling by using DOE (design of experiments) based on sequential programming technique. In order to achieve better suspension and steering system geometry, this technique has been applied. The results have been compared with the benchmark vehicle.

Improvement of Steering Performance Using Steering Rack Force Control

Hyundai Mobis-Byoungyun Lee
Hyundai Motor Company-Chanjung Kim, Dayul Son
Published 2019-04-02 by SAE International in United States
Drivers continually require steering performance improvement, particularly in the area of feedback from the road. In this study, we develop a new electrically-assisted steering logic by 1) analyzing existing steering systems to determine key factors, 2) modeling an ideal steering system from which to obtain a desirable driver torque, 3) developing a rack force observer to faithfully represent road information and 4) building a feedback compensator to track the tuned torque. In general, the estimator uses the driver torque, assist torque and other steering system signals. However, the friction of the steering system is difficult to estimate accurately. At high speed, where steering feeling is very important, greater friction results in increased error. In order to solve this problem, we design two estimators generated from a vehicle model and a steering system model. The observer that uses two estimators can reflect various operating conditions by using the strengths of each method. Therefore, it reflects the driving situation more precisely. We evaluated real vehicle performance under various operating conditions to compare the actual rack force and…
