Method for the Kinematic Analysis of the Vehicle Axle Guiding Mechanisms

Cătălin Alexandru

Abstract—This article deals with the development of an analytical method for the kinematic analysis of the axle guiding mechanisms that are commonly used to guide the rear axles of commercial and off-road vehicles. The method can be applied / adapted for most types of axle guiding mechanisms (at least those commonly used). Unlike the most existing kinematic analysis methods, which involve the development and solving of nonlinear equation systems, with the subsequent disadvantages, the method proposed here is based on linear systems, which are easy to solve. The computation program was developed by using the programming environment Borland Delphi.

Index Terms—Vehicle axle, guiding mechanism, kinematics, analytical algorithm.
