Suspension design for construction machines
The project concerned suspension design for improved ride comfort and handling in construction machines. The aim was to investigate how such a suspension should be designed, taking into account the particular vehicle dynamic behaviour and operating conditions of the machine. Topics covered in the project included ride comfort, lateral stability and modelling aspects.
Financing was provided in the first stage by VINNOVA and Volvo Construction Equipment, as part of the New Type of Construction Machinery project. After 2007, the research was included in the ECO2 Suspension Design project.
