Abstract

The aim of this paper is to investigate the influence of floating bridge motion on bus driver’s ride comfort and road grip for the straight concept solution across Bjørnafjorden. For this investigation 3 degrees of freedom (DOF) bus model is defined for numerical simulation. Bus model has been excited by vertical motion of the bridge for four different bus speeds. Ride comfort has been assessed according to method and criteria proposed by International ISO 2631/1997 standard. For road grip assessing Dynamic Load Coefficient (DLC) has been used. It has been concluded that on floating bridge ‘little uncomfortable’ ISO 2631 criteria is reached at lower bus speed comparing to stationary ground road. Higher values of DLC for the case of floating bridge points out higher variation in vertical tyre forces (worse road grip). For bus speed at 90 km/h, DLC for floating bridge is approximately 0.08 which is 7% higher value comparing it to the case of stationary road.
