The objective of this project is to investigate the vehicle ride and handling of the Myvi using the ADAMS Car simulation software and from the result obtained, studies will be carried on to develop some effective improvements to optimize comfort and handling of Myvi. The Perodua Myvi is one of the leading local cars in its class. However, it has its own share of problems when it comes to ride and handling as they had been many complains circulating around saying that the Myvi is not so comfortable both for the passengers and the drivers. Complains stated that even small flaws on the road can cause a sufficient discomfort to the drivers and passengers. The scope of study of this project will be as follow: · Study about the vehicle ride and handling. This includes the factors that can affect the ride and handling of a vehicle, the basic vehicle ride modeling and the handling modeling. · Study and construct the model and simulate it in the ADAMS Car software to produce the ride and handling results of the Myvi under different driving condition. · Analyze the obtained results and propose some potential improvements that can be implemented to optimize ride and handling of the Myvi. The methodology for this project basically has more emphasis on using the ADAMS Car software whereby the significant hardpoints are measured and inserted into the ADAMS Car modeling software to model out the original Myvi suspension system. The suspension system will then be modified in order to obtain the best feasible results. The findings that so far had been obtained are the type of suspension the Myvi is using, which is the Macpherson for the front and torsion beam at the rear. In addition, the rough calculation of the suspension ratio and the bump to scrub ratio had been calculated as well but the value might change later in the project due to some inconsistency in the measurements of the hardpoints obtained. The measurements of the hardpoints for modeling had been attempted but the result was not accurate due to some difficulty in the measuring process. Obtaining the hardpoints from Perodua itself will be the best solution. The current progress is on hold while waiting for the reply from Perodua and trying to figure out the new method of measuring the hardpoints in a more accurate way.
