Abstract

The aim of this work is to analyse the effect of suspensions and racetrack three-dimensional features on the minimum-time performance of a full dynamic multibody model of a sports motorcycle. The optimal-control minimum-lap-time problem is solved with indirect methods on both a two-dimensional and a three-dimensional track model, and the results are compared. The effect of suspensions is also analysed.
