Modeling Half-Car Suspension in Simulink/Simscape?
38 views (last 30 days)
How would I go about building the automobile below as a Simscape or Simulink diagram? The system should be simulated with the below numerical values, while F1 and F2 are to be chosen suitably to represent the road conditions.
I understand more or less how to model the individual spring-mass-damper systems in Simscape (simscape is easier for me to understand than Simulink), but the part I don't know how to implement is mostly the car body itself (which I'm assuming is a rotational mass) with its given lengths (l1 and l2) and the given mass moment of inertia.
Any help you could provide me with is much appreciated!!

I think that you’ll find inspiration in the Lever block in the Simscape Foundation Library, possibly by complementing the equations in the source code.
Good luck Juan (MathWorks)
