Full Vehicle on Four Post Testrig

This example models a passenger vehicle on a four-post testrig. The posts move up and down to replicate the vertical movement of the wheels as it travels along a road. The simulation results and animation show the response of the vehicle body and suspension as it is subjected to the motions from the testrig. The roll and pitch of the vehicle body can be observed, and by varying the inputs wheel hop frequencies can be determined. The vehicle model can be configured to use different suspension types for the front suspension with different linkage combinations.
