ABOUT ESTIMATION OF HEIGHT OF THE CENTER OF GRAVITY OF VAN-TYPE AUTOMOBILE

Hubert Sar , Piotr Fundowicz

Abstract

Very often performing calculations regarding accidents reconstruction, some inertial parameters of automobile are needed. It is usually not problematic to measure vehicle mass and location of the center of gravity along longitudinal axis. It becomes more complicated when it is necessary to obtain mass moment of inertia of vehicle or location of the center of gravity in vertical direction (above ground). The aim of the article is to propose equations that estimate the height of the center of gravity and require only such data of vehicle that are easy to find, for example mass, wheelbase, vehicle height etc.. Coefficients in new formulas to calculate this parameter were adjusted using objective functions. The reference here were the values of height of the center of gravity obtained through test stand measurements enclosed in NHTSA database that also included information about basic inertial parameters and dimensions of van-type automobiles
