Abstract

In this paper some selected conclusions have been drawn from the simulated maneuver of a vehicle’s momentary acceleration in various road conditions. The aim of this paper was to answer the question whether the random irregularities of the road could decrease the final speed of the vehicle and cause it to deviate from the straight line motion and to what extent. These irregularities had three different maximum amplitudes which enabled analysis of vehicle’s acceleration on the less and the more uneven road. Also, almost the same and almost different profiles were assumed for the left and the right wheels of the vehicle’s model.

Some additional phenomena such as the ice on the road have been taken into account. The initial speed was 20 km/h and after 2 s the vehicle started to accelerate. Then, after 8 s the simulation stopped, which gave the whole simulation time equal to 10 s.
