This work illustrates the modelling aspects of an advanced motorcycle multibody model which captures the most important features of the vehicle, including five different suspensions schemes (telescopic fork, telelever, duolever, swingarm and paralever) all provided with their own flexibilities. Several lumped stiffness are used to model the structural compliance of the frame as well as the flexibility of the transmission system. A passive rider model which simulates the interaction of the rider… 

An advanced multibody model for evaluating rider’s influence on motorcycle dynamics

The dynamics of a high-performance motorcycle are greatly influenced by the rider’s weight and movements especially when the power-to-weight ratio is very high. Generally in motor vehicles, the

Dynamics of a high-performance motorcycle by an advanced multibody/control co-simulation

The present work aims at the development of an advanced control system implemented through Adams/View-Matlab/Simulink co-simulation for a high-performance motorcycle dynamics study. In particular,

Frame loads accuracy assessment of semianalytical multibody dynamic simulation methods of a recreational vehicle

This study shows that a semi-analytical method that constrains the vehicle frame center of gravity movement along a recorded trajectory, using a control algorithm, leads to an accuracy within 1% for predicting frame loads, when compared to reference loads from a full analytical model.

A Screw-Axis Approach to the Stability of Two-Wheeled Vehicles

The stability of two-wheeled vehicles is predominantly characterized by the well-known weave and wobble vibration modes, which have been extensively investigated in the literature, mainly in terms of
