Hi! My name is Abel and I’m from Peru. Using this personal site I would like to share my current research as well as some publications in congress and journals. I’m doing my PhD dregee at PUC-Rio in Brazil. The objetive of my thesis is implement a control algorithm that integrates the main sub-controls that a passenger vehicle have, for instance, ABS, ESP, TCS and among others. My research interest include multibody dynamics, control theory and parallel computing. Currently, I’m working at the Mehrkörperdynamik Labor at OTH Regensburg in Germany. Here, my main task is to improve a virtual test car model implemented in MATLAB.

Description The suspension is an important mechanical system in road vehicles. A typical suspension system consist in links, control arms, bushing, spring, damper and bump-stop. The rigid parts, i.e. links and control arms determine the kinematic of the suspension and the force elements, i.e. spring, damper and bump-stop define the forces that the suspension, with a generalize motion (road irregularities), will apply to the chassis. We can see on Fig. 1, some common suspension systems in passenger cars.
