The model simulates a quarter of vehicle employing Simscape. The input to the model is the road profile. The outputs are the displacement and velocity of the sprung and unsprung masses. The current model uses a chirp signal from 0 to 25Hz as road profile, in order to test the frequency response of the system.
In order to run the model, the Motor Drive Libraries for SimMechanics provided here are necessary: http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/27589-motion-driver-for-simmechanics
Said files are employed in order to calculate the velocity and acceleration of the road profile and utilize a Simscape Ideal Velocity Source as input to the model.
