Abstract

This paper presents an optimization of a multibody truck semitrailer model; itspurpose was to find the best values of suspension parameters in order to minimize thedisadvantageous influence of force distribution in the high risk areas. A number ofsimulations with different parameters and under different load cases have been carried out,combined with a parametric and structural sensitivity analysis, and in this way individualfactors influencing particular forces have been estimated. The stiffness and dampingcoefficients of the construction suspension system have been adjusted by applyingmetamodeling techniques, using two different approaches: Kriging and polynomialregression. Finally, using a desirability function, the most optimal solution has been found.
